    The new built-in Spyware scanner that Netscape 8.1 comes with,

    "The Netscape Browser provides real time Spyware scanning when you download files from the web. You may also run memory and disk scans for Spyware protection and prevention.",

    does anyone know if this is a built from scratch Netscape (AOL) product, or is it a renamed AdAware or Syybot, or whatever.

    Thank you,

    The Spyware Protection feature of Netscape 8.1 uses the PestPatrol engine, but it is not a full-featured PestPatrol program. :)

    I wonder how this compares with Microsoft AS and Spysweeper? I guess it will take time and examination by the experts here to make a good determination.
