News: PestPatrol Goes Free

PestPatrol, Inc. “the leading developer of security software to detect and eliminate spyware, adware, trojans and hacker tools from corporate networks and home user PCs” (I don’t know whether there’s any limit on the length of phrase companies can claim they are the best at, but I’ll faithfully reproduce them here; maybe we can have a competition sometime for the silliest one) have launched the first
comprehensive online spyware detection service
. For free.

PestScan from PestPatrol is a web-based program that runs right from the PestPatrol website, downloading just a few small components to the user’s computer. It is designed to provide a quick and easy way to scan Windows PCs for spyware, keyloggers, and other computer pests in the places they are most likely to be hiding. The PestScan results link directly to PestPatrol’s extensive pest information database, enabling users to find out exactly what the threat level is.

I haven’t tried this yet. Let me know how it works for you.
