    Heya guys, I'm adding Ewido and A-Squared to run along with my Spybot, Ad-Aware, and SpywareBlaster. Anything I should know about them before I use them ?

    Ewido was purchased by Grisoft and I've heard it might be incorparted into AVG products eventually. Otherwise, it's a good application and it's better at trojan removal then A Squared.

    I still prefer A Squared solely because it runs nicer for me.

    I like both programs

    You are talking about the free versions?

    Ewido will find more tracking cookies than A-Squared.
    Ewido and A-Squared have both come out with new versions recently and IMO they are improvements!

    Ewido has optional heuristics in the Scanner selections.
    Ewido also has 5 different scans and A-Squared has 4 different scan types.

    Ewido has some tools included with their free scanner and the "analysis" tab has lots of useful features.
