    Hi All, I am new to Wilders Security Forums so Hello!!

    I have been a long time user of Spy Sweeper antispyware and it has served me well in the time I've had it. But now, my subscription expired and I am looking for an alternative. It doesen't matter if it's subscription based or its a free to use program. I am just looking for a good alternative to Spy Sweeper. I have had my friends recommend me Ad-Aware but again wanting to find out from others what they think is best.

    Any opinions would be most appreciated!

    Thank You,

    Robert

    Allow me to say that if you are satisfied with a product there is no need to change. Of course this is your decision. Before passing to the suggestions it would be useful to know which antivirus you're using. All major AVs are antispyware too, so it's not always necessary to use a dedicated anti spyware. In any case here are some suggestions:

    - A-squared : Antispyware + antivirus ( v5 is coming soon and it will be antispyware and a full antivirus )
    - Superantispyware
    - Malwarebytes Antimalware

    SPSW used to be good but it has become very heavy. i would suggest a free product since there is n need for a realtime as software. Now if you really want one do buy
    SAS
    MBAM
    good luck

    There also is Spyware Terminator
    which is free
    www.spywareterminator.com

    also have a strong support forum.
    www.forum.spywareterminator.com

    it includes realtime plus a HIPs for unknown.

    also includes clamAV which can be intergrated into ST for a bigger database.

    yes people will say it sucks but they are working hard on making it better release a new version almost everymonth and soon they will be releasing their first 64bit beta of ST.
