Used to be a favourite of mine but no longer use it as it only seems to do half a job.
Lost it's way methinks. SAS and MBA are the best freebies for now in my humble opinion.

Well this new one looks impressive now.

seems to load a bit quicker, only tried a quick scan at the moment

Another program I used to use and was Lavasoft's Ad aware. That's binned also.
Four programs needed for commonsense surfing, with exceptions of Firewall and AV are, in my humble opinion ,
Spywareblaster
Spybot S&D
Malwarebytes' Antimalware
SuperAntispyware.

Yes it does seem a bit quicker.I have to go out later so will give it the big scan and see how long it takes.rdave13 I have tried SAS and was not impressed with it that is why I came back to A Squared I also have MBA Winpatrol. McAfee Site Advisor and Spywareblaster but none of them stopped the rogue Anti-spyware program that tried to download on to my computer to-night.So my protection is still not adequate.

"I also have MBA Winpatrol."
With respect I think we are along crossed wires here.
Win Patrol is too aggressive for my liking. click here .
Reminds me of Norton or similar.
My previous post is adequate protection, with the addition of link scanner lite. This is only good for IE but can manually scan in any browser.
Since you use the wonderful McAfee Site Advisor then you'll have no need for it.

Your protection is all you can get, paid for or not.
Get Antivirus 2009 whatever, pop-up ,while using a search-engine' then bring up task manager to close the browser.
Common sense and no amount of firewalls ' AV's or antispywares will stop it unless you do.
The above recommondations in my previous post will try to undo the damage.
