Please state the "best freeware antispyware program" out there that you use and give some reasons as to why it is the best..

 

As for me I use three different ones...

I use everything in my Anti-Malware package.

 

CWShredder, SpywareBlaster, MSAS, Ad-Aware Pro, Spybot, CCleaner, HijackThis.

 

But most of all I use my brain. It's the best for stopping malware infections. :D

 

Oops, forgot I got ewido too. /blames rridgely. ;) Got me hooked on a nice program.

Here are the security programs I use.

 

Ad-aware

Spybot

Ewido

Zone Alarm

Etrust EZ Antivirus

Spyware Blaster

 

 

The only thing I have running real time scans is my AV. Like Tarun said the best tool is your brain.

I use AdAware SE, Spybot S&D, BitDefender Pro AV/Firewall, and WinPatrol.

 

I had ZoneAlarm, but for some reason vsmon.exe would hang at startup and caused Windows to lockup, I had to uninstall it.

If you have MSAS, then you might as well do away with WinPatrol, because whereas MSAS alerts you straight away, WinPatrol alerts you quite a bit later, when any alerts should already be done and dusted.

The way Sandboxie is working out I think I'll just keep Vet AV ,ZAP and Ewido as on demand,with Firefox as default.

 

Thinking of saying goodbye to Adaware,Giant.Spywareblaster,mpvs hosts,Spybot,A2 and Winpatrol.Thanks to these softwares for their good and reliable service.

Yes, he is saying that he stole it. Also if he dosent quit posting about how he steals software and where to go to steal software he will be banned.

 

 

 

 

Don't wait.......give him a PM warning and...............

 

I myself use a-squared, Spyware Blaster, Spybot, Ad-Aware and a small app from Vietnam Solutions called

"VnS14H" which works silently in the background. I have used it for 4-5 months and appears to work very well and contains no spyware or adware and is free.

Also use CCleaner of course!

 

AVG Free and ZA Pro (paid)

Hi i use microsoft antispyware, CCleaner, Ad-Aware SE Plus, Ad-watch SE Plus, Yahoo Antispyware, WinPatrol 9.7 Pro. all genuine, not pirated, and all paid for to help to develop them more.

 

I don't like boasters who admit they steal it, they should do what microsoft do and that is make it so that you have to validate it before you can use it.

I searched but could find nothing.
