Old and Cranky
Sandboxie, ToolbarCop, CWShredder v2.12
I love Lockergnome!! Chris Pirillo and his Staff and contibutors do a great job keeping us informed and aware of changes in the techworld. The latest things I found are some really good system security helpers, to keep us "Spyware" free and rolling across the internet.
First of the good tools today is an update to an old favorite. CWShredder(TM) (Version 2.12) that eradicates browser hijacker HomeSearch. This polymorphic spyware takes control of a userís homepage settings and is considered to be one of the most tenacious browser hijackers. HomeSearch continuously changes its own file name to defy anti-spyware detection. No matter how many times a user tries to remove HomeSearch, it puts itself back in control of the userís browser, not allowing the original homepage to appear.

Next is ToolbarCop v3.3 which is a browser extensions manager which can disable or eliminate the following browser add-ons selectively from Internet Explorer. More info and download available here.
These packages are rounded with Sandboxie v1.5. This app lets you browse the web without leaving traces on your computer.
