What I like about it is that after you have done a complete scan, you can enable real time protection. It already caught a couple of things nothing else did.

Indeed...Spy Sweeper has the same option but seems a bit heavy... 😉

Thanks, certainly worth a try.

Would this be comparable to what SpywareBlaster's purpose is?

If by that, you mean does it block or alert you when unknown programs try to do things ore utilize libraries, change the registry or startup parameters, yes.

Yes I see the difference now after having aquainted myself with Spyware Terminator.

The free version of SpywareBlaster only tries to block spyware intrusions and doesn't alert the user.

Spyware Terminator looks very promising all around, the choice of options and flexibility with the settings are impressive considering it's freeware.

I'll be keeping it, thanks 👍

Glad you like it. I have been trying to get my head around some of the more esoteric functions. If an when I figure them out, I will post aditional information.

I also use Clamwin which is a Windows port of clamav, an antivirus program originally created for the Linux world (I used to use clamav on email servers I ran). Both are excellent and are resource friendly

Thanks for the ClamWin, I'd never even heard of it.

Just browsing through the FAQ I read that 'You don't need to disable ClamWin Free Antivirus as it does not yet include on-access scanner. It won't conflict with the software you are trying to install.'

Very handy ❗ 👍
