Pros: Nice one It detects and removes that pest called the BABYLON TOOLBAR which installs itself even though you opt not to download it. On my Vista desktop it will not remove malware unless I run as administrator. To do this (VISTA) Start All Programs locate the Spybot folder click then right click on the spybot S&d go to run as administrator. It was great for removing the trojans an other malware that McAffe did not block now I habe switched to BITDEFENDER its not found anything

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have heard there are fakes of Spybot S&D
The one from this site I have found to be safe.
