    Back in the days when Norton Antivirus was the norm and checking for the latest spyware with Ad-Aware Free.

    I tried Cyberhawk, but it was just so slow on my machine.

    Can this count for On-demand too? :) sounds better...

    Anyway myn was Ad-Aware Personal version 1.05 when it was only 2MB and did a job back then, 5 Years ago. Last used it 3 years ago.

    But if only Proactive... Then Spybot S&D Tea Time, Last used 3 yrs ago too with Ad-Aware. MBAM, SAS & CIS replace em all!

    Cheers,
    Josh

    NOT Dr. Web -- Dr. Solomon, as I wrote. It was long long ago -- I have been using computers since the days of Olivetti Mag-card Programmable Calculators, CP/M, Univac, IBM650's, Apple //, Jacquard, Wang, Atari 800, Commodore 64, etc.

    AFAIK, Dr. Solomon was bought out by McAfee.

    Ehmm...AVG Free? :oops: (if you can call an AV proactive given their performance in proacive tests...).

    I wasn't running much else at first. Then i started reading magazines and Wilders' and i became paranoid...
