Looking at the above link, What does everyone think of Spyware Terminator?

At the moment I'm using Windows Defender and doesnt pick up nothing at all?

Note on SpywareTerminator: We originally listed Spyware Terminator on this page out of concerns that Crawler, the company behind the product, had established connections with IBIS, a well known adware distributor responsible for such adware programs as Wintools, Websearch, & Huntbar. Although we found no problems in our initial testing with Spyware Terminator, and while the vendor itself announced that it was exiting the adware business (1), we decided out of caution to impose a three month probation period before we would consider re-testing and, if warranted, de-listing the the product from the Rogue/Suspect list. During that three month probation period we monitored the behavior of IBIS and Crawler. At the end of the three month probation period we re-tested Spyware Terminator, again finding no problems serious enough to justify listing the program on this page. As the vendor involved has not been involved in the distribution of adware for many months, and as the program itself exhibits no problems serious enough to warrant mention on this page, we have decided to de-list Spyware Terminator from the Rogue/Suspect list and can no longer regard the program to be "rogue/suspect."

Rob_24_Wales, you've misunderstood it seems: "...we have decided to DE-list Spyware Terminator from the Rogue/Suspect list and can NO longer regard the program to be "rogue/suspect."

Seems very good for freeware - a review click here. G

Also check out AVG Anti-Spyware Free click here. No real-time protection in the free version though. G

What I got so far is this:

AVG Antivirus
Zone Alarm Pro

Spybot
Ad-Aware
AVG Antispyware
A2

Windows Defender
