Is there a good alternative Spyware programme out

depends what you want it to do - I have avg as my main virus prog - zone alarm as the firewall - windows defender for malware - spybot s&d and adaware that I run weekly and win patrol on guard all the time to stop anything changing or trying to set up anything on my pc. I feel pretty well protected.

As per Vog's suggestion.

You could also consider Spyware Terminator click here

Remember that installing many anti programmes could make the end results poor, and may even cause problems between programmes and for your computer.

I have not seen anything mentioned that beats Spyware Doctor ,So why don't you just keep it.Stop it running at start up,And just use it when you want to,To me it beats all the free one's mentioned,There may be a pay for one that might be as good,But none mentioned so far.

SebBux, hola

If you want an a different commercial product you might like to consider Spy Sweeper. I dumped Spyware Doctor for that - click here

Another bit of top commercial kit is Mischel's Trojan Hunter - click here

Spysweeper is better than Spyware Doctor & I run it once a week with no slowdown problems which is what you get with Doctor.

Spyware Doctor is much faster than previous versions, and seems fine and very quick with me. how much ram do u have
