Thread: Which spy/adware remover do you use

  1. #1
    I use Spybot + adaware

    They are pretty fast and reliable.

    What do you use and why

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    adaware pro and spybot are the main ones. I use cwshredder and vx2finder also for hard to clean spyware. Regcleaner is also used for cleaning up registry entries and startup items.

    if you did a scan with something like webroot spy sweeper you would be surprised by how much crap is on there that you don't catch with spybot and ad-aware.

    Other :I only use 1, I have spybot, Ad adaware, Spyhunter, Xsoft but none of them can come anywhere close to Pest Patrol corp v4.
    I've run it on people's puter directly after running spybot only for it to find 20 od bad files etc.
    IMHO it can't be bettered
