I recognised some of them and I will repeat that I haven't tried them personally.
Just looked good to see so many listed and linked together?

yeah that list isn't too bad.. surprised to see that malwarebytes isn't on the list.. to me that has got to be one of the best free malware removal apps going.. superantispyware is another one..

what you using for an AV morgan ?

Yes, I think that Malwarebytes is a major omission as is A-Squared. I use those along with SpyBot, as I think the combo covers most things.
For an AV I tend to use Avira (I still run some Win2000 boxes) or Avast! The Avira product is quite good as it seems to have a full set of options and controls, but you need to be careful of false positives if you set it into paranoid mode ;)
I have come across a new product from "TallEmu" (don't look at me like that......I didn't come up with the name:D) called "online armor". There is a firewall and a program control element. With the program control you have to tell it what you think of anything new that turns up, and it will remember your decisions. It also has some sort of sandboxing facility to run stuff in restricted mode, if you are not quite sure. It gives you UAC type (or better) protection and works on Win 2000 and XP.
Just in the process of upgrading to Endpoint....So far..I hate to admit it... endpoint is...well good :shock:
EDIT> I would like to hear The Horse13 opinion on that<EDIT
I have malwarebytes on my usb tuff and tiny....cause everywhere I go I get ..."Ohh could you look at my computer...its acting strange lately" :rolleyes:
good for that "misleading" fake av....that tells people they have 3000 infected files...over and over and over again...

I know I work for Panda but we too have a free Av (totally cloud based) , very surprised too see its not on there. The article is about 3 years old though.
