I don't know if this has been posted before. I just downloaded Microsoft's AntiSpyware because Ad-aware and Bazooka couldn't do anything about a horrible spyware I had in my computer. And it removed all the spyware my pc in about 5 minutes.

The program is easy --and fast-- to install and to use. It loads in a second and it not only removes adware but it also has real time protection. Since it's a beta version it may have its risks but it seems a pretty good program.

I downloaded and ran Jul 13, 2005

the Mircosoft antispyware program. It scanned my hard drive, result: no spyware found. I then ran SpySweeper (for which I pay a small subscription fee, about $30 for two yesrs), it found and removed 16 spyware programs. Ad-Aware (free) then found another 11 problems.

Translators shall not live by one anti-spyware program alone.

The previous comment applies to antivirus Jul 13, 2005

It is safer to run different antivirus from time to time.
I personnaly use the AVG free version and download trials from other vendor (Norton, Panda, Kapersky ...) in order to run a full scan with a different technology. The only thing is that you have to wait for new releases if you want to use another trialware from the same vendor.
There are other free Antispywares
- a² :
- spybot :

It's good to run different ones at times.
