2-spyware.com project is dedicated to helping people know more about spyware, malware, adware and other programs that can harm their computers. It is one of the largest sources of security-related information on the Internet, which provides clear and professionally written parasite removal instructions, anti-spyware software reviews and news articles - everything what is essential when trying to prevent or remove viruses.

This site is not a newcomer. People behind 2Spyware started analyzing malware (spyware, adware, trojans, etc.) in its early days, when more and more parasites began spreading on the Internet and became a real headache for PC users. In fact, that was before major antivirus companies decided to pay their attention to these types of viruses and effective anti-spyware programs were released.

Our mission is to help people get rid of ANY virus that your computer might be infected with.

Encyclopedia of parasites

2-spyware.com is the site when you can find the highest-quality information about spyware, malware and general security. Content is split into several major sections where the largest of them is the Encyclopedia of computer parasites.

It consists of separate categories that all group parasites according to their type, distribution methods and functionality. Each description provides details on virus behavior and gives detailed removal instructions that include the list of processes, files, registry entries and other objects that are associated with a particular threat.

The Encyclopedia of computer parasites is updated daily. 2 Spyware team doesn't forget previous entries as well - they are filled with the additional details, that are typically revealed after some time of virus functionality. In most of the cases, it couldn't be done without users' feedback.

Anti-spyware software

There is a lot of different anti-spyware programs on the market today. However, not all of them are on the same level - some anti-spywares are good only at virus removal while others can easily guarantee the highest protection. That's why we decided to make a special Anti-spyware Software section and help people to choose the best spyware remover. Here you will find reviews of different programs, test results and overall rating.

To learn more about Anti-spyware programs visit Software section.

Library of files

Library of files is another important 2-Spyware.com section, which has many in common with the Encyclopedia of computer parasites. All files are grouped according to their types, i.e. extensions. Most of the files have short descriptions but you will always know which of them belongs to harmless software and which of them is malicious. The Library of files is constantly updated.

The main mission of this project is to help people fight against different kinds of computer parasites, including spyware, malware, adware, trojans, etc. In most of the cases, we try to encourage people using manual parasite removal instructions. However, Internet is full of sophisticated viruses that can be eliminated only with a help of complex removal guides. This is not an easy task.

In order to help people save their time and also help them avoid possible problems that might be caused by the incorrect use of certain instructions we decided to create Ask Us section.
