    I dont think so.

    Microsoft bought THE ANTI-SPYWARE specialists Giant Antispyware!

    There product is very very very good. Haven't seen anything better.

    SO why try to beat them when you know you cant!

    I have done some actual testing of MSAS versus several other antispyware programs. Particularly focusing on real-time protection. MSAS loses. Acronis Real-time spy shield stands way above the former Giant product.
    Your comments about MSAS being the best you've ever seen are really suspect. The thing is so buggy, prone to false positives, and a huge resource hog. I will use it for scanning since it will be free, but I still prefer Acronis for real-time. Just my opinion.

    Acronis Comes with very unclear messages that a simple user just would see. Acronis also doesn't have the option to remove the threat when it tries to install itself!
