    In ZA Pro 6 there is an Antispyware module in which I've read reviews that is meant to be very good. Now is this Antispyware module actually CA's Pest Patrol or different, i.e its made by ZA themselves.

    The Spyware part of ZAP is 'in-house' and not provided by CA.

    It's very new and I really can't say how good it is. I treat it as an 'extra' rather than as an important part of my security.

    I really like the new 'Operating System FW' part of ZAP, that seems to me to be far more important/useful in stopping the installation of spyware etc than the Spyware scanner itself - but of course you've got to understand a little about it in order to fully benefit; it's no good if you mess up the configuration or just click to accept every pop-up!
