I am after a decent spyware program (free), currently using microsoft defender. Is this any good or are there other programs which are better.

Never use Spyware

but always use ANTIspyware.
1 prog will not remove all you need a combination.

For best results run
a blocker such as SywareBalaster click here

a realtime scanner, defender is good as any

a back up scanner to run once a week or so to see if the others have missed anything I use AVG antispy for this
AVG Antispware click here
Adaware click here

but the choice is yours
Anti Spyware :-
Adaware click here
Spybot S&D click here
Spywareblaster click here
Spycatcher express click here
a2 click here
Windows Defender click here
AVG Antispware click here
Superantispyware click here
Hitman pro click here

If you are already using Defender you should only need SpywareBlaster And any other one of Fruit Bat's selections.I use A Squared but there are loads of free ones to pick from.

ad aware is a great program, i have used it for ages and i have never had any problems with it, and the personal edition is free.

I use this click here with good results.

I have used or trailed most free versions of anti programmes, and in the end you and the computer can get confused.Stick to one or two.
