    SAS does it for me...
    CS used to be too heavy last time i used it (it was a year ago!... havent tried it since.. may have changed)

    Spybot and Ad-Aware are standard IMO (many better available)

    If I still would use AS-scanner(s) as a daily protection, SUPERAntiSpyware would be on top and I like its clear GUI also. I can't say how good it is compared with other AS-scanners, because I'm not qualified for this.
    As an average user, I wished, there was something like AS-comparatives to get a more objective qualification, rather than reading all these personal opinions. :)

    None of the above as number 1 but let's give Spybot a vote (as number 2 in my list of good dedicated AS applications) :thumb:

    It looks like SUPERAntiSpyware is at the head of the class. :D I was having some problems with SAS before, but I finally figured out what the problem was and it's working fine now.

    Wow, my post 21 in the one Bubba spoke of I did not even list my current number one choice (and I am not a flavor of the month switcher either)

    SAS is clearly my favorite now. My how things can change sometimes.

    Why is your poll so limited?
    Are you trying to ask which software you should use?
    And 4 of them is what you can use?

    I vote other as I don't use a separate antispyware anymore.

    Why pay for any spyware program when the free are just as good. I tried Counter Spy,Spyware Doctor and Spy Sweeper. All of them take up too much memory and are slow as hell. Counterspy took 98 min to scan both my drivers and updates are slow. SuperantiSpyware gets my vote along with Spyware Terminator. Both of those combined make for a good scan. No need for spyware broken to be running in the back round. I have my NOD32 and Online Armor to keep my safe. I just do a scan once a week with noth SAS and ST.
