what antispyware is best along side norton

  J B 20:23 07 Mar 2005

I have at present microsoft antispyware beta and I was wondering if I should run it on it's own. microsoft says you should not so I'm asking which is the best,and also should I remove the beta version of Microsoft antispyware from my main and only computer J.B.

Anti Spyware :-
Adaware click here
Spybot S&D click here
Spywareblaster click here
a2 click here
Spyware Sweeper click here
MSoftAntispy Beta click here

Combination = MSAntispy + SpywareBlaster + A2

Spywareblaster stops alot from installing, MS stops anything that passes blaster, A2 good for trojans

Not found anything with Spybot and Adaware since installing MS.

Don't bother with Norton it costs and hogs resources.

AVG and MS antispy on my machines. These are all you should need.

I have Norton, MS Beta, Adaware, Spybot and CC Cleaner. No probles with them at all. Ever since MS beta, there has only been one case of a spyware getting through. And I used to get eight to nine a week.

Anyone had experience of Bulletproofsoft?
I have downloaded a trial version but it will only scan - to remove the spyware it finds you have to subscribe!

Very bad idea click here

Thanks VoG™. So it seems that BPS is a rip off of SpyBot amongst others - no wonder it found 900 pieces of 'spyware' that Adaware did not!

And so much for the so called experts at PC World that said it was much better than SpyBot.
