Yahoo Anti Spyware

By: Jesse Miller

The newest release from Yahoo is a spyware and pop up blocker that comes in the form of a toolbar. They introduced this feature as a response to the increasingly amount of malicious software that roams the internet. Yahoo has stepped up and provided a tool that is always on watch to prevent intruders getting access to your computer.

This toolbar can be installed on any browser, form Internet Explorer to Firefox thus covering compatibility the two most important tools for internet surfing. My guess is that Yahoo finally realized the importance of protection from spyware and they decided that a little broadening of the horizons couldn't hurt.

Quick Note: Taking the Nonsense out of looking for the right spyware remover

If you really want to take the work out of looking for that right Spyware Protection from a Spybot go to the Internet and get a Free Spybot Download or a Spybot Search and Destroy
to prevent your vital information from being ripped from your computer.

Probably Yahoo felt a little left out on the anti spyware market and they decided to create a tool that would make them appear in headlines for one more time. I installed the tool and I must say that it's quite good. It offers a pop up blocker that is used to keep away any unwanted windows. On overall, I was pretty pleased of their product and I decided to let it installed because you never know when it might come in handy.

As a general conclusion, yahoo did a fairly decent job in creating this tool especially with the part that is appended to your local browser. You can check it out at any time and make the proper configuration as you go. With this tool installed spyware will have a hard time getting into your computer, but that doesn't exclude the fact that you must be careful on what you click.
