    Which is the best free anti spyware available now? I am presently using Counter Spy. Rate your best one. Windows Defender is also considered as the best free antispyware for genuine windows users.

    Most reviews rate webroot spy sweeper as the best. But it's paid.

    Use Adaware Along With Spybot Search And Destroy They R The Best Combo To Handle Malwares

    And Do Not Forget To Keep Ur Sys Update Otherwise Any Combination Can Be Forged

    Thanks for your feedback guys. I think its better to stay with Windows Defender. Googling windows defender reviews also suggests the same. It has the best detection rates.

    I've been using AVG antivirus with AVG antispyware, since the AV is free and the AS has a free trial. None of the reviews seem to bench AVG, how do you guys think it performs?
