I guess I never realized how many resources this piece of software was using. I feel like I have a new computer! For now, I am using Spyware Doctor instead of Spy Sweeper. However, next December I will be migrating over to an all free secuirty suite. In any case, I really was just wanted to comment on how much an improvement I have seen on my system since removing SpySweeper. I also did a disk cleanup, a defrag, and cleaned the registry. Now, the scans that were taking NOD32 1 hr and 15 minutes to perform are now taking 30 minutes.
