    Hi Guys - Who should be resident Ewido 4 or SpySweeper 5? I have both paid & must decide who will become "on demand!"

    Thanks

    id try both and see which runs lighter or lets windows boot faster.

    OTOH, if your AV is a bit weak with trojans, then id choose ewido as resident.

    btw, "ewido vs. spy sweeper" would have been a better title. putting the program versions makes teh topic unclear.

    Hello WS

    I am running Spysweeper which is comsuming 70,688k + 43,528k, so Ewido will likely win here.

    Boot Time - for me not an issue

    AV - weak on trojans use Ewido - What do you think I'm running NOD32?

    Thanks

    If I were going to choose only one, it would be Ewido.

    I have licenses for both but, at the present time, I only use them as on-demand scanners; real-time resource usage for both programs is too high for me, even on a new computer with plenty of RAM.

    If you run a good AV and firewall, regularly clean out your cache with CCleaner, use a non-IE browser then you should be safe against spyware and trojans.

    But given the choice, I would pick Ewido. Since using Firefox and a Hosts file I have only found a few tracking cookies with any of my AS applications.
