    Yep...

    I test it but use to much memory, and I prefer the WinPatrol that it is much better for now...

    Not sure how old/new this application is, but worryingly Google finds nil hits when searching the name Arovax Shield

    Very odd. o_O

    The thread at the Avast forum was quite funny. :D

    About Arovax, I don´t think it´s necessary when you are already using MS AntiSpy. ;)

    Well, I do think that MS AntiSpy is good. The only problem with it is that its a large download.

    Now, onto the subject of Arovax Shield: I tried to run it, but I couldn't (It keeps on crashing when I try to run it). I wonder if anyone with Windows XP SP2 managed to run it. If not, wait for the next version (I sent the developers an e-mail about it).

    We have to wait a while until this program could have real test...

    It's a very green program...

    Yes I agree, MS AntiSpy is not really an option on slow machines, and it´s a bigger download but it also offers a lot more. Arovax just doesn´t seem that special to me, but it does have a nice and simple GUI though. I´m going to check it out just for fun. ;)
