    I have just ordered Ewido. I understand it is one of the best ATs, but also that it detects spyware etc. Doed it detect adware/spyware as well as Adaware Pro.

    I have Adaware pro running - but find it sucks a lot of cpu power - so dont want to run it if Ewido covers most of the same things.

    Any advice welcome...

    PS - Not sure this is the right place for this post - Ewido is an AT, but mu question refers to its ability to find spyware etc...

    Hi Chris,

    Fish25 is the Ewido guru on this forum I think. Hopes he can answer this.
    I am running Ewido as well but together with an anti-spyware tool. I think the combination will do a better job than Ewido alone. But then again I might be totally wrong.

    I purchased it too, after being convinced by someone. next week will be a upgrade fixing a lot of things: resource,...

    I have spybot and adaware pro as well and spyblocker for blocking.

    but I believe their main goals will be downloaders, trojans, rootkits and dll thingies eventually.

    and they have great detection for tracking cookies as well :D

    The main focus of ewido currently lies on trojans/backdoors, dialers, worms, keyloggers and downloaders. Nevertheless we're adding every spyware to our database we get but unfortunately I can't say anything about how it would compare to the well known anti-spyware programs out there.

    Personally I'd recommend running an adaware on demand scan from time to time... :)

    FWIW, I installed Ewido on a family member's problem pc.

    This past weekend I scanned her computer with Ewido after an Adaware scan and Ewido did find some spyware items.
    They were mostly tracking cookies.
    Both programs were updated prior to scanning.

    I haven't tried scanning with Spybot first yet.
