    Well, I´m not fan of realtime antispyware so I don´t know
    On demand: Superantispyware has given me very good results. A-squared and AVG AS aren´t bad choices either. Be aware that, in my experience, antispyware scanners are more prone to FP than AVs

    spy sweeper has the higher detection rates, but avg antispyware does hold its own.
