Beware of Fake Anti-Spyware Programs

But beware, some anti-spyware tools can do more harm than good.

In Spyware-Removal Program Tagged as a Trap, Paul Roberts writes about Spywareno, which "is installed on Internet users' computers without warning, can be difficult to remove and may be accompanied by malicious programs that hijack victims' Web browsers, according to interviews with spyware experts."
