    Never used any of them. So at least my view will not be clouded. From what i've read on various forum's WD is a load of rubbish. Spinach Antispyware on the other hand seems to get some good press. If the choice was between the two to put on my machine i'd opt for Spinach. But you also have the likes of Spy Sweeper, Counterspy, SuperAntiSpyware, Zerospyware, Ewido, Ad-Aware and Spybot. If you've already run the rule on these then go with Spinach.

    I agree with Muf. I ditched MS Windows AntiSpyware long time ago.
    MS Windows Defender is just a new serial of a bad soap.

    Hi, I can tell u Defender is really a deceive from MS, it does not detect anything so far. I checked it. Much worse than previous MSAS.
    I hope they will improve it.

    The author of Spinach AntiSpyware must be a fan of the cartoon "Popeye, the sailor man."
    I hope this helps. :D

    It's no wonder Microsoft almost never detects anything on Virustotal. Microsoft's always been a security joke, and it doesn't seem much is changing really, despite all their publicity stunts.

    Microsoft's security is hidden under transparent windows. :)
