      Good AntiSpyware?

      Hi Anyone know any good antispyware programs?

      I have found some stuff with XoftSpy but without paying for it, i'm stuck with the pests.

      Sfonditalia - Dialer
      New Dial - Dialer
      Media Motor - Adware
      FileSpy - Keylogger
      Exploit Child Watchdog - keylogger
      Winpcap - networking stuff but potential route in.

      But i've already tried :

      Ad-Aware SE Personal
      bazooka adware and spyware scanner 1.13.03
      counterspy
      Steganos AntiSpyware 2006
      spyware catcher express
      super antiSpywarePro
      SpybotSearch & Destroy
      Spyware Doctor 4
      CA eTrust PestPatrol Anti-Spyware
      SpywareKill_TRIAL_LITE
      Trend Micro Anti-Spyware 3
      MyCleanerPC 1.0.24

      All to no avail!

      So once the trial version finishes, does it have any advantages you know of over the current free AVG product. That seems to be far better than the McAfee I have on another machine and has regular updates?

      Whenever, McAfee updates it always seems to really slow me down and I just get the impresssion it is a lot more "clunky", so are tempted to scrap it in favour of AVG on all my machines.

      Any thoughts, comments appreciated.

      Regards,
      Ian.

      @Ellies

      AVG is mainly if not all anti-virus software, i'm not 100% sure what Ewido is but the others i have mentioned are antispyware.

      And in this cold dark world of 'playful computer programers' that we live in, you definatly need both.

      Does anyone else wanna try XoftSpy, see what they think of it? Its supposed to be one of the best, with no false possitives.

      Hold on!!! I'm wrong lol..

      AVG does an anti spyware now too!


      Ewido is now AVG!

      Tried it and its not found the stuff.

      F-Secure online scanner found nothing either!

      I'm not sure what to think anymore!

      I've always found XoftSpy to be good in the past. It found a CWS highjacker that i picked up and nothing else could find. I hadn't paid for it back then but used HijackThis to delete the CWS.

      And to make things better Sky have closed my fault ticket.

      Spyware and slow connections!

      Have you tried Google searching as this might throw up some results that might help. This is how I managed to get rid of a rogue dialer on my brothers old computer.
