Default Microsoft AntiSpyware

It's a beta right now and it works very well. Microsoft had it for free on their website or you can click here- http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

I like it so far... it get's things my other program didn't, but right now it's bugging my PC-Cillin antivirus. I just have to shut it off long enough to update my pc-cillin.

One gripe...took msconfig to stop it at startup. Other than that it seems to scan quickly. Didn't find a thing on my machine.

I just un-installed it... made my comp slower... I will wait until final release when it's perfect.

That's the best antispyware program IMO

However, it leaves parts of spyware that cause errors, like blank popups :/

they can't make up their minds if they are going to charge for it or keep it free. Too many people were getting mad when they said they were charging a fee for it, because it is like charging for a tire plug when you sold the tire with the hole in it
