    Hello Forum,
    My License for SpySweeper runs out in one week, Should I renew or change to Ewido,I read on the internet that Ewido is good, is it in the same class has Spysweeper.

    Ewido is more considered as a Anti-Trojan application, even though it's excellent protection and detection for Spyware, Spy Sweeper is in its own class when that's the matter..
    If you want the best for Spyware, Spy Sweeper would be the choice...

    Hello Raven211,
    I did not realize that Ewido was more of a anti-trojan App,so would it be a good idea to have both running in real-time.

    I would go for Ewido and Superantispyware,both free versions, as on demand scanners.

    Running your browser through Sandboxie should keep you spyware free.

    I never tried the Pro version of SUPERAntiSpyware that have on-access scanner.
    I don't like the resources that ewido use for on-access, so I think you should try both and see what is better for you and your system.

    I don't use any AntiSpyware for on-access, only my AV, a program to check the windows startup entries and the HOSTS File...
