    I just ran across it on MajorGeeks, it seems pretty nice, I've been testing it in in a virtual machine for a day or so, anyone have any opinions on it? Just wondering if anyone around here uses/have used it before.

    I have been using Spyware Terminator for a few months now.

    It's a beta program,but it has been stable.

    Pros:
    Runs light.
    Free program with REAL TIME monitor.
    Updates database regularly.
    Versatile configuration,includes HIPS.
    Three types of scans;Fast,Full,and Custom.

    Cons:
    False positives.Do not remove items without researching every one of them.

    Agree with the Tester's assessment except that I have had no FPs at all...except if referring to the Unknown SW (which is reported after a scan if ST does not have a record of the application) but that is not a problem as you can 'authorise' or mark any of these that you are happy with as Known for future references. I would add that in most cases the scan times (on my PC) are quick when compared to some of the paid applications (except SAS which is also quick).

    It seems like a very usable piece of kit, IMHO.:D
