What's best! Adaware, Spybot or both?

  albu 12:34 21 Aug 2004

I ran adaware and found nothing. I then downloaded and ran Spybot v.1.3 which found and fixed a number of items.

Is it better to have one or the other, or is it better to have both?

Any advice please?

Both - they each miss things that the other finds.

Also Spywareblaster to stop things getting on in the first place click here

both, they have diferent functions.spybot is for spyware and ad-aware is for adware.

Both as you have seen one detects something whereas the other does not.

Fully support these suggestions to use both and add that you should include SpywareBlaster as well.
