    Yes.
    No, it's like MS-Anti, just with a bigger database, 93577 signatures ATM.
    Spy Sweeper has the following shields:

    Internet Explorer: HiJack, cookies & favorites shield.

    Hostfile: Hostfile + Common ads shield

    Windows system: Memory, Spy installation, ADS execution, windows mssenger shield.

    Startup programs shield.

    P.s. You will have to disable MS-Anti's real monitor, if you buy SS.
