Anti Spyware with Yahoo Toolbar

Yahoo has launched a new anti-spyware tool for Yahoo users to fight against Spywares. Yahoo has named it "Anti-Spy" and it is available in Beta version. You can get Anti-Spy by downloading the yahoo toolbar. Yahoo toolbar comes already with a pop-up blocker and now with an Anti-Spy software. It allows users to scan and remove spywares installed in the computer and other malicious software. Spywares get install sneakly without the consent of the user to steal information such as they monitor keystrokes, which site the user has visited and that information is used to target ads and other spam offers. Spywares also collect passwords, credit card numbers etc. Click here to get the toolbar.
