    I agree - I stopped using ad-watch and would not install it again even though I paid for the software. I didn't like TeaTimer when it was first released and did not install it this time with the new version.

    I am running RegDefend which I really do like plus a few other alert guards but RegDefend is the one I would recommend as mush better than Ad-watch/Teatimer.

    I paid for the software and im very sorry as it not offers much more than the free version. Adwatch is not smt special, i dont like it.

    Same here...

    Ad-watch use some resources and doesn't protect us very well...
    TeaTimer doesn't be configurable...

    So try to use the on-access scanner of CounterSpy, Microsoft AntiSpyware or SpySweeper... ;)

    Due to lack of system resources on my old '98 computer (and of funds to do anything about it!), I found I couldn't run either. I certainly can't run SpySweeper in 'real time' but, as I got it half price with a free upgrade to Window Washer, I don't mind.

    My anti trojan monitors my Registry, and I have another program called Startup Monitor which does exactly what its name suggests.

    Tried them both. Ended up using RegDefend along with the extensions (Tony's and Kent's) that are available on the RegDefend forum.

    I forgot to mention the excellent, very easy to use, and free WinPatrol :D

    Well i'm going to buck the trend. I like Ad-Watch. I use it on a 4+ year old Win ME system and it runs sweet. It provides some good protection against registry changes and startups plus spyware cookies. Spy Sweeper resident is too much and my system is brought to it's knee's. Teatimer i like but is not as good as Ad-Watch. Winpatrol is way overrated. Just what does it protect you against? I ran it and it only ever seemed to tell me about new startups. The cookie monitor is horrible! Say no to it allowing a cookie and it keeps asking you(i had it set to monitor every 1 minute and it kept asking me about the same cookie every 1 minute). Binned it, i had to for my sanity.

    Another option is RegRun's Watchdog. I run it on my WinME partition. Very light. Very configurable. Good protection.
