    Spyware Doctor vs. Ewido real time protection

    I have both of these products and was wondering which one I should run in real time protection? Spyware Doctor has a lot of great real time protection features that I like and I was wondering if Ewido did the same thing or what are their real time protection differences? Also, what would you suggest I chose to run by itself in real time?

    Because they are both different types of products they really can't be compared. I will say if you want the best defense realtime for Trojans/worms run Ewido in Realtime. If you want the best defense realtime for keyloggers/adware/spyware run Spyware Doctor. I have both and run both in realtime. If this is not possible for you choose whichever one you think will benefit you more.

    Hope this helps,

    Chris

    I for one will never recommend Spyware Doctor to anyone. I was never more disappointed in an application than I was with Spyware Doctor and their so called support. I spent two weeks via email trying to find out why Spyware Doctor was the only scanner that supposedly found a trojan on my computer. I was told by developers of Spyware Doctor to look for an option in the program only to find out it is only in the paid version! I indicated in my inital email that I was using the trial version!

    Enduser I can understand your frustrations but in defense to SD support maybe it it was an oversight. Your post also sounds a little off topic as well since the original question from the poster was "I have both of these products and was wondering which one I should run in real time protection?" and also " Also, what would you suggest I chose to run by itself in real time?".

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Well an oversight that they never apologized for. Especially when I clearly indicated in my inital message that I was using the trial version of the product.

    First do not use IE as a browser but use either FireFox or Opera to cut down the infiltration of spyware. If you find something for realtime protection that isn't a system hog either when the computer initally boots up nor while Windows is running and has a support department people that can actually help people I would also like to know. I have not found such a beast either.

    :(
