    I didn't find out about Trojan hunter until after I purchased PP.    I've been waiting for a really good test of all these apps to see which does the best job.

    Thanks AAPlus, I recently became a "TDS3 operator" (sorry... it just sounds cool) after looking at how well it performed compated to some of the other AT programs.    I guess my question is now do I really have any need for PP anymore?

    Hi Liquid_Fish,

    As for:

    It depends on what you are looking for. If only for an anti-trojan: no need for PP other then as a back up on demand scanner.

    If for other so called "pests" as well: yes.

    regards.

    Hi Liquid_fish
    Welcome aboard as a licenced TDS operator as well!
    Sounds really good eh?
    TDS and PP do both very different things, both unique in their own kind, PP is good for many kinds of detections like pests, infections, spyware, cookies, and what is written in the other PP thread here,

    while TDS looks with complete different eyes.

    Thanks.  

    I must say TDS has a ton of functionally,  I think I have hit about 25% of it so far.   There are some menus I haven't even experimented with yet.   All in due time.
