    I downloaded the free scan version of spy sweeper and noticed that the spy shields and virus shields are active and running. I know that is it working because it already blocked 9 cookies and a BHO and some other crap that was legit. Anyway are these shields limited or what? Should I use this free version as my main spyware blocker? I don't see why not if it is as effective as the full version spy sweeper. I know I can't delete any spyware that it finds but I don't care because I got a whole bunch of other spyware apps. Also does anyone know a known bad site that spy sweepers internet communication shield detects that I can go to and test it?

    Thank You

    i guess its like the spyware doctor trial all the shields available but no removing
    with on demand scans.
    i have spysweeper but its got to bloated recently and if you close IE7 with all the shields active it blue screens this is with the 5.3 version. im not the only person with that issue.
    1.what is your antivirus?
    2.do you visit the dark side of the web?
    3. do you get infected by spyware or other malware often?
    if you answered no to 2 and 3 you dont need realtime antispyware protection and can have a faster pc because of it
