Spysweeper Alternative?

  Tugwilson 15:23 12 Oct 2006

Hello Folks,
Bit of a long story but really a simple question.Is there an alternative to Webroots spysweeper? I have recently (by accident really)found out How much this prog had been hogging.Im not knocking the prog,I think its excellent at what it does,But.i can live without the slow-down.

Any advice?

Spybot search and destroy
adaware personal edition
spyware blaster

all free and easy to use. I use all 3 and find them to be effective and I never tend to have spyware due to spyware blaster.
