Found this on last weeks Clif Notes Newsletter. Don't know how I missed it.

I've been cleaning computer systems for many years. In that time, I have found several tools that I use on a consistant basis. The three I use most often are Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, and HiJackThis.

I recently had the opportunity to interview Merijn Bellekom, the creator of HijackThis and the man who single-handedly took on CoolWebSearch and all the other little nasties we love to hate. He was very forthcoming about his reasons for coding this project, why he made it free, and even shares a little bit about what is in store for the future.
