Default Site Check

Is there a program or something that can scan a site before you go on it to check for spyware and the such? That would be really nice...

most spyware is badly written, so you could check it against the w3c site validator, the dodgy cookie dropping spyware code/embedded activex scripts will probably show up here...

yeah that would be good .. only ways to stop spyware is to have the Spyware removal tool watching your system 24/7

all I can say to that is...

Linux, open solaris, open office, Bind, apache, privoxy, squid, shorewall, smoothwall, mozilla firefox...

some of the best applications, clear leaders in their field, and yet they are exactly the same as spybot, free, but you can, (if you like the product and want to), make a donation to further the development of the tools you are using.
