Which is your main Anti-spyware tool?
Not for me I guess.
These programs are only effective, if you are totally uninterested in computer security or to clean heavily infected machines. On the other hand, scanners are the only means to know if something malicious is already on your system.
I check my systems only 2-3 times a year, and without sounding arrogant, not one single malicious object was ever found in 5 years.
Threatfire for on-access, MBAM for on-demand.
MBAM, of course.
A-Squared of course.
Microsoft Security Essentials alias Windows Defender in a way.
For me it's PrevX 3.0 realtime/on demand and MBAM as an extra on demand.
What has happened to Spybot
Besides my Kaspersky suite I scan on a regular bases with SuperAntipsyware. Although it really never finds a thing
Real-time: Microsoft Security Essentials, Prevx 3.0 (paid). On-demand: MBAM, Panda Anti-Rootkit.
No vote for Spyware Doctor, I'm surprised
Outpost Firewall Pro.
• Another +1 for MBAM - speedy scanning
• Hitman Pro 3.5 - speedier scanner
Anti-spyware Poll and 1 of the best AS is not mentioned as a choice
