spybot search and destroy or adaware?

having had adaware on my puter for a while and regulary updating it. i decicded to try spybot

to my amazement it found so many other entries that adaware did not and removed an annoyance that has been bothering me for a while

so in short is spybot better than adaware?

Use both

I used to use both but running Adaware after Spybot bcame a total waste of time as Spybot had already done the business. RIP Adaware.

I use both - but I don't always agree with what they want to delete - so watch the list of discoveries carefully.

I do.

agree with most people here.

I use both, and both have their quirks, but between them seem to do a good job.

i use both, spybot quicker but adaware finds more but very slow

One will find something regularly that the other doesn't.

The latest version of AdAware6 (build 181) runs at least twice as fast and also adds one or more running proccesses.
