In the recent past, ITS has recommended a free product called "Spybot" to address this threat, but it involves additional system overhead and is difficult to properly maintain. McAfee Anti-Spyware Enterprise (ASE) functions as a simple enhancement to VirusScan Enterprise, enabling it to recognize spyware as well as traditional Virus-type malware. Your machine will not look or perform any differently than it does now when anti-spyware is deployed; the virus scanner will simply become more capable, and you will not need to run a third-party tool to deal with spyware. If your machine is ePO managed, these tools will be deployed to your workstation automatically unless your system administrator blocks their deployment in your area.
To avoid interference with other security software, we strongly recommend that you disable Spybot's "T-timer" application or the Windows Defender real-time protection if you are currently using them. These applications are no longer necessary if you have deployed McAfee Anti-Spyware Enterprise.
McAfee Anti-Spyware enterprise is not licensed for personally-owned machines. For personally-owned machines, we recommend Spybot Search and Destroy.
