I run Ad-Aware and Spybot on my machine and am thinking of adding Spysweeper too. Anyone got any views...pros or cons about it?

My own view is that you should stick with the free options...

Greetings pal, thanks for the quick response...could I ask why you're not too keen?

I think what Diodorus is saying is why pay for things when there are decent if not better free alternatives.

Think Dio means it has a trial period and then expect you to pay for the full version.
There is enough freebies out there nowadays.

Thanks for the mind readers :-) That's what I meant.

No need to pay for AV/Firewall/AntiSpyware for most users; nor indeed for Office Suites, DVD / CD burning, and so on.

There is very little commercial software on my pc.
