    I have both Spy Sweeper and MS Antispyware, which have these brief comparison features:
    - Resident real-time scanner memory load of MS AS is about 17 MB.
    - Resident real-time scanner memory load of Spy Sweeper is about 27 MB.
    - SpySweeper incorporates the 'Shields' concept - MS AS does not.
    - Some of the enabled 'Shields' remain effective even when Spy Sweeper is shut down.

    I'm currently running this combination:
    - SpySweeper 'Common Ads Shield' was enabled, and Spy Sweeper shut down.
    - Only MS AS is configured to run at Windows startup.

    The results:
    - MS AS real-time scanner is enabled, with it's light memory load.
    - Whenever a site ad is detected, the Spy Sweeper 'Common Ads Shield' is triggered, killing the ad - even though Spy Sweeper is not resident in memory.

    Other combinations are possible, though not all Spy Sweeper 'Shields' remain effective when Spy Sweeper is shut down.

    I found this interesting - hope you do too.
