SpyBot S&D

Can anyone recommend something as good as this? I'm getting mightily teed off with it. It now takes up to 6 or more attempts to launch it. On my latest update attempt it now states I need administrative rights to use the immunize feature. I go to an account with admin rights but it only immunizes the computer for that account not the day to day account I use. It has only just started doing this and personally I don't need the aggro.I now have ~50,000 not immunised and ~30,000 immunised.

To use Admin Rights, when you open it right click on the icon and select "Run as Administrator" in the context menu.

Alternatively, download this Beta Version click here
which has addressed the sluggish opening times. You still need to use rawprawns steps to immunize though.

Spybot finds nothing on my computer since downloading it about 3 months ago.I would go for A Squared it has 3 different scans that you can run.1st takes about 5 minutes 2nd takes about 20 minutes and the full scan takes over an hour.I use the first scan most days the 2nd scan once a week and the full scan once a month.And its free.

Tried SuperAntispyware and I'm very impressed. Already use A Squared on my other computer and found it took forever to scan, will remove and install SuperA.
