AVG Free SpyWare program

Hi all,

What are people's opinion on the AVG Free spyware program?

Clean and absolutely fine,realtime scanning on a trial basis unless paying for the full version.

Works fine for me. Most spyware is installed by user intervention and no amount of protection will help. Common sense is much better.

Have used it a while (it was called eiwedo not so long ago) and am happy with it.

Have been using it for over a year - scans emails, too

I've been using it on a trial basis but it's never had to be used in anger so far.

i think David is asking about AVG antispy and not AVG antivirus.

A good program.

I have been using AVG antivirus for over 3 years but only downloaded AVG antispyware yesterday.

Thanks for that Skidzy and DavidCap - I have now downloaded AVG Spyware, too

I was talking about AVG AntiSpyware - added it to the lineup and manually update it at least once a day now the trial has run out.
