    Seems to remove the spyware and browser hijackers as well.

    How light is this program? It might have been in the reviews but I skipped over it. Is it light/heavy?

    I would describe it as medium. A little slow in opening and also it lacks shell extension, which I find annoying...but give it a spin, see if it suits you :)


    Cheers

    Is it their own AV, or does it implement Norton technology? Sounds too pricey for me right now, but if I can get a good discount it sounds worth trying.

    I tried it and it was slow on my machine. I it got good results because 99% of the tests samples are Rogues, so Spyware doctor detected most of the stuff. The av is not very good at all.

    I'm currently using PC Tools Internet Security 2009 (15 day trial) based on Matt's great review and so far I like it. It picked up a lot of spyware that other programs missed.
