I don’t run a real time anti-spyware app, I don’t feel the need to, but I due plan to buy RD in the future. I have checked out a few AS apps and noticed that the real time protection on most either feature a simple registry monitor (spybot, ad-aware) or monitors a host of “checkpoints” (MAAS, Counterspy and Spysweeper for example). Now I have looked at the checkpoints that Counterspy monitors and noticed that with the exception of a few, hosts file protection for example, most of the things it monitors are just registry entries. So my question is can RD simply be set up to monitor most of the checkpoints that popular AS apps monitor, effectively eliminating the need to run an AS app in real time? I would much rather have RD protecting my registry than MAAS, since it does not poll.
