Well, based upon my reads, it seems to be fine, and as a small download, doing so much, it's lookin' pretty good. What all do you want to know?

Well, personally, if I wanted something like it, that's what I'd get.
What are your uses going to be?

Well, google? There's a spyware called ViewPoint Media Player..

Why weren't you more direct, though?

avg doesn't protect against spyware

d/l spywareblaster for spyware prevention, but still do manual scans evry now and again.
