Has anyone ever known this programme to actually find anything? It updates on a regular basis, but I have scanned numerous times and it always reports that my system is clean....tempted to deliberatly download a nasty and see!

No. But I have not had any spyware either. I occasionally (monthly) run Spybot, Adaware and A2 and nothing to report.

Either the system is working perfectly or all is hidden (!)

None of my security software programs have ever detected anything - but I think I will keep them ;-)

Run spyware doctor and adaware on my xp stsrems....from time to time they do pick up minor infections, and deal with them...I not convinced by Defender and may replace it with Spyware Doctor for Vista
