CounterSpy detects, deletes and protects! CounterSpy has Active Protection. You could call it a "spy-wall." There are "checkpoints" that are monitored in real-time for attempts to install spyware. A very high percentage will be blocked by CounterSpy. Just like the early days of viruses, spyware is quickly becoming an increasing threat to both individual and corporate computer users.
