This spyware remover constantly monitors your PC for spyware and scans on demand. The utility is easy to use and doesn't consume much memory, but it has a restricted base of spyware definitions. As a result, it didn't detect all the installed malicious programs in our testing, including eZula and MyWay. Adware Agent offers the option to remove detected programs or to put them on the Ignore list. You can neither see nor edit the list afterward, however, and the trial version doesn't actually let you delete the found items. The program also doesn't reveal the exact list of blocked spyware it uses. Home users can download the software to see how it compares to their current adware removal programs.

Adware Agent is a Windows product for monitoring and protecting your PC from those annoying spyware/adware/worm-infused programs that run on your PC without your knowledge. These programs can send your browsing history back to their companies, slow down your Internet connection, send spam, and even slow down your PC. Adware Agent will prevent more than 320 spyware ActiveX Controls from installing on your Internet Explorer browser. It also blocks more than 30 Browser Helper Objects, but it cannot remove any adware or spyware until registered.
