    Actually it would be a second port of call. Counterspy 2.1 uses fewer resources and is cheaper to buy.

    i thought counterspy used more resourses but that must of been version 1.
    edit just tryed counterspy 2.1 upstairs its really improved since version 1.
    but i would try prevx2.0 that has njust come out instead.

    I didn't want to get into a long drawn out battle over this and have to prepare reports to prove my case - what you see in task manager is not the true story.....that's really not the way to measure actual resource usage.

    And I don't have the expertise to refute your argument. However judging from how light Counterspy runs on my system I'm glad I bought it. :cool:

    I am not knocking the product, Counterspy is a fine product and a great addition to your system. I was just bringing to the readers attention that you have to be careful when you state "facts" that may not be facts, but rather opinion. :)

    Readers will simply have to try themselves and judge. Because your understandably a little biased. ;)

    Did you not see this part "I am not knocking the product, Counterspy is a fine product and a great addition to your system"

    I saw it and agree. I'm simply stating that readers should try it themselves as I own a Counterspy licence and you are the developer of another product and can't be expected to say a competing product might have some edge. Even if that edge is how it feels on a readers system. As I stated I don't have the ability to dissect any reports you might prepare concerning resourse usage so you've got me there.

    I don't try to keep up with resource usage as long as whatever I am using does not slow my machine down.
    One exception was Counterspy. The earlier versions of CS used a lot of resources, although I did not notice any slowdown.
    However, I tested CS 2, and it did greatly reduce resource usage. I think it is one of the top AS, although I do not use it. If one does not have such an application, it is my opinion that CS 2 is among the best.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    I could be wrong but I do not believe KIS protects against some browser hijacks or screenshot keyloggers. A free setup of Spyware Terminator (with HIPS and Clam av disabled) plus Snoopfree would help in this regard.

    I noticed the other day when I installed AIM my homepage was changed but KIS did not issue any warnings. Also I believe there were some tests that showed KIS vulnerable to some Spycar tests involving browser exploits. But I cannot find them now.

    I'm working with KIS 7 at the moment and use the great SuperAntispyware on demand. This is enough for me. KIS will do the job and twice a week I run SAS and this will get all the rest like cookies and stuff.
    When I'm under "attack" I will run SAS a bit more

    I dont use any security products alongside KIS because its signatures and PDM are adequate forms of protection and I feel safe with them. I only use on-demand scanners which are SuperAntiSpyware and AVG-AS and i use them every few months... just encase something seeps through... hasn't happened so far though.

    I havent experimented with other AS scanners, so will not say they work the best, but in my experience, they work fine for on-demand alongside KIS v6 and 7

    Counterspy is initially cheaper if you have no plans on renewing the subscription. SAS can be purchased with a lifetime subscription for $20-$30, depending on how you acquire the "special". :p

    I've installed both programs on over 100 pc's and there is no doubt that SAS runs lighter and has the best support from any anti-spyware solution. Kudos to Nick and his crew. :thumb:

    Different systems different results as I've said in the past. But I personally don't like "lifetime" licences for a variety of reasons. Try before you buy.
