    I know about ad-aware and spybot, but are these the best spyware detectors, is there any better ones out there?


    Thanks

    I use Spysweeper and for me it has worked better than Ad-Aware

    I have to agree. SpySweeper has worked far better than Adaware or Spybot on my machine.

    ok first there doesn't seem to be app that is flat out better then another in this area. I use Spy Sweeper, Ad-aware, Spy-Bot Search and Destory, Pest Patrol, Bulletproof ad/spyware remover a few times but its for the most part a rip of ad-aware and spy-bot last one is a fairly new one I found but is a good one Gaint AntiSpyware

    Have to agree there, I use the first four, plus Spyware Blaster and TDS3 Trojan program.

    The end result I am keeping a clean system so far with them and I never buy a program without trialing it first. It is becoming an expensive hobby to keep your beast clean these days from all the dross and Crap software out there.
