    What are the little ads that Adaware finds? I have the free version of that and run it quite often to quaranteen and delete those objects.

    I just ordered Process Guard so I have all of your tools now.

    Do any of your tools address the same problem that Adaware does?

    If not would you recommend buying their upgrade version.

    I think Spywares is a very different area and isn't covered by DCS.
    A spyware isn't a trojan nor a worm, so i don't think DCS products can detect most of spyware.

    Ad-aware or Spybot are dedicated to hunt spywares.

    TDS does detect the trojan downloaders and the kind of spyware, could be in TDS-4 mor spyware detection will be covered or maybe even in TDS-3 already, but not all the adware etc.

    In the ad-aware registered version is the watch function which warns for modifications in the registry. You might have RegistryProt from DCS free tools for that already.
    The coming products among which AutoStartGuard will add nicely to that.
    SpybotS&D is another free anti-spyware scanner with lots of other options and settings.
    And not to forget the JavaCool arsenal, which you find in other pars here in the Wilders forums, which are highly appreciated as protection and detection tools.
