    I'm curious if anyone has any GOOD, recent "Independent" anti-spyware test or tests that they could provide a link to.

    It seems like most of the tests I see these days are either:

    A) outdated
    B) conducted by the manufacturer (not very independent), or
    C) omit some of the top competitors (while including names of some I've never even heard of)

    *Would be nice to see one include names like Spy Sweeper, CounterSpy, Spyware Doctor, Microsoft Anti-Spyware, Pest Patrol, Ad-Awware SE Plus, Spybot Search & Destroy, etc. (ATs like ewido, TrojanHunter, BOClean, TDS, A2, etc. would simply be a plus)

    I'm guessing not, since quite a few have viewed but not replied.....

    Yeah, I know, ronjor.....that's why i was wondering if there were any good "recent" tests.....a lot can change in 8 months. For example, I don't even think CounterSpy was available and on the market 8 months ago, and Spyware Doctor was at version 2.1 (currently 3.2), etc.
