With Adaware, Spybot, Cwshredder and Housecall all being free, I have had no need to pay for such.
For now I've been using AOL 9 Spyware which isn't the greatest Spyware but for now it will do. You would have to run it 2-3 times in a row to be effective according to AOL standards.
I'm looking for a better Spyware software and saw this one http://www.anti-spyware-review.toptenreviews.com/ It looks good according to the website and also includes a $29.00 annual fee which doesn't bother me if it's worth it.
My questions are: Has anybody tried this Spyware software? Is it any good? I downloaded a free one shot demo trial and came up with 72 items that AOL Spyware missed. Sixty nine of the items were cookie thingys which explained to me it was a "Cookie thats shared between 2 or more sites for the purpose of tracking". I'm wondering if the excellent rating that this site gives it is just a gimmick to sell the software or it's a legit software. I might add the only way I could get rid of the 72 items it found was to buy the software.
Thankyou for any suggestions.
