    At this time, you can't download spyware to your iPhone so there is no need for antispyware stuff.

    As you cannot download from the internet, this is not something that effects the iphone.

    There is no need, nor such a product.

    If your iPhone is at the latest iOs (4.2.1), and is not jailbroken, there is no spyware on it. Some earlier version of iOS could have unwanted stuff installed by visiting certain websites.

    There is spyware that can be placed onto your phone and its very easy for someone to do if they have your phone to themselves for less than 5 minutes. I know because someone put spyware(flexispy) on my phone. I'm currently looking into seeing as to whether or not there is any type of anti-spyware. In order to remove spyware, you have to restore your phone and do not back it up before you restore it, otherwise you will restore the spyware as well. Be prepared to lose everything music, pictures, contacts etc...

    Your phone has to be jailbroken to install that software. You have nothing to complain about.

    I downloaded my pictures and am afraid I have placed the spyware into my computer now. How can I eliminate this from my computer completely? I am so sick of dealing with this spyware. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    You could not have downloaded spyware from your iPhone to your computer. If your computer has spyware, you should download or purchase the appropriate software for your computer. Without knowing anything about your computer, it would be rather hard to make any sort of recommendation.
