New Yahoo toolbar beta with anti-spyware feature

Posted on Thursday, May 27 2004 @ 23:56 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Yahoo helps fighting the battle against spyware by providing a anti-spyware plug-in in its toolbar in order to find and remove unwanted spyware on your PC. Yahoo used the anti-spyware software from Pestpatrol to provide this new feature.

This beta version also allows users to manage various spyware and other download software, including the ability to resture accidentally removed programs.
Along with the beta test, Yahoo started an online forum for consumers to discuss spyware issues and find the latest information about unwanted software, including an updated list of the biggest spyware pests.

Yahoo did not say when its Anti-Spy feature will become generally available in the Yahoo Toolbar. It is now available to a limited number of users as a free download here. It requires the Windows operating system and Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher
