    Does anyone know if the antispyware engine used in AVG Anti-Spyware is the same one that is used in AVG Anti-Malware and the AVG Internet Security Suite?

    Thank you. I hope the next version has heuristics for spyware dectection like the AV Guard already has.

    I understand your sarcasm. I never understood why the promised plans made by Ewido to add Heuristics and Behavior Analysis were never implemented by Grisoft. So many competitors have exceeded them in this department and you would think it would matter to them, but apparently it doesn't. Don't get me wrong I beleive it is still a fine Antispyware program, but perhaps an outdated one as well.
