XPY: Security and Antispy

22 July 2004, 12:28 pm ISTFiled under: Software

XPY is an open-source tool which disables the default threats of a Windows 2000/XP/2003 installation. Beside classic "Antispy" features, xpy closes security holes like the RPC Service and DCOM, which were used by internet-worms such as "Lovesan" to intrude into a system.

Some of its features are:

  • Disable Windows XP "calling home"
  • Disable questionable system-services
  • Disarm Internet Explorer
  • Disarm Media Player
  • Remove Windows Messenger
  • Improve security
  • Improve performance

Did I mention that it is small ? Only 44 KB in filesize. According to me that makes it an essential software for every windows installation.

Download XPY.
