    Has anyone come across any antispyware test sites ? I've never come across any and would like to test out Spyware Doctor, Spysweeper, etc to see how well the work.

    Hey Mover,

    The Malware-Test Lab folks have put together an AntiSpyware test and their latest results can be found here.

    The results are unreal :eek: . They're saying only 30 % of the spyware is being caught and cleaned properly !

    Here's an (apparently) knowledgeable and well thought out comment concerning these malware tests, from Superantispyware forum: http://forums.superantispyware.com/viewtopic.php?t=265
    Worth a little cogitation.
    Partly as a result of reading this, I'm a little more circumspect these days about how much creedence to place in test results.
