Hi guys, just a quick question for ya'll. I've been using Spybot Search and Destroy for awhile but i'm considering making a move to something new, any suggestions ?

I suppose just so long as it's:

a] Free
b] Works properly

Regards

zaphodity

P.S. Sorry if this post isn't directly related to Secunia.

Hi zaphodity.

We've all got our "favourites" and are usually happy to provide info - on a "caveat emptor" basis of course.

Spybot seems to match your criteria so is there any special reason you want to change? It might help us comment further.

EDIT: PS. does this link help you?

Variety is the spice of life and the spice must flow !....Not sure how to spell that in Latin....

Seriously, the last few scans i've done with Spybot have picked up vulnerabilities
within IE 32 Bit. I'm not sure as to why, and I feel like a change. Thanks for the link.

Ok, made an executive decision. I'll go with Ad-Aware Free and give it a spin for a few months. Thanks for all your advice and the links.
