    Smile New Anti-Spyware Program

    There is a new anti-spyware program named Spy Sweeper , it is free and I tried it to scan my computer and detect some spyware which is not detected by ad-aware & spybot search & destroy. It can also search for trojans. Download it here

    Spy Sweeper

    Then you had better test it against the Professional (paid) Add-Aware version first !!

    or even better let someone else test them


    the prog looks good... but just like Add-Aware.. didn't find anything

    I am using ad-aware pro version now
    Spy Sweeper can only detect 2800+ trojans and spyware and I think ad-aware can detect more. The problem is that some spyware are not detected by Ad-aware but are detected bt Spy Sweeper

    Cool..


    the only thing is.... Spy Sweeper crashed my box (twice) scanning a 300 MB zip file (openoffice)
    so I uninstalled it !!

    Jin_X if you don't let cookies come to your PC and watch out for "****" then the "****" don't even invate your PC and Ad-Aware don't have anything to do. Make a test go to the sites with the most "****" (underground and M$'s site) let the cookies come to your PC then make a scan with Ad-Aware and see the result. I have tested this and the result was 63 ****S.
    Ad-Aware 6.0 Pro rulezzzz!!!!.

    I ran the Spy Sweeper and it didn't find anything.
    Ad Aware has been working well.
    Just glad these programs are available to us.

    I prefer to use a combination of

    Spybot S & D
    Ad-Aware 6
    and Spyware Blaster .

    It's good enough for me For some reason I dispise trialware, prefer freeware

    I prefer freeware too but some projects are too good to be free.

    I have used Ad Aware at home for a long time. After reading this post a few days ago I sat and installed Spy Sweeper here at work and it found a lot of "interesting" things. Personally I have always liked Ad Aware, but the Interface with Spy Sweeper is a lot nicer and easier to use. Plus I find that there is more information displayed in the interface with Spy Sweeper than Ad Aware.
