    Hi ppl,
    Been reading a lot of articles about how various tojans and spyware software attacks your computer. I've been meaning to buy/download one of these softwares off the internet to act as a blocker/firewall etc.
    Since most of them are 50-60$ wanna know which is a good bet and if anyone is currently using which is it? and how satisfied are you with it.............some of which i have checked out are spyware doctor, adware, norton internet security and countless others.......

    Also is anyone using a registry cleaner. Tell me if it is really usefull and why do we need it?
    Thanks
    PS. If this thread already exists please tell me and i will not post in this anymore.

    Threads like these do exist ... anyway ...

    Anti Spyware (use em all)

    Spybot S&D
    Adaware
    Spyware blaster

    Firewalls (use just 1)

    Zonealarm
    Kerio personal firewall
    Sygate
    Outcast

    Registry cleaner (using more than 1 isnt likely to help)

    MS Regclean
    Easycleaner

    All are available for free. BTW, registry cleaners are useful, as windows doesn't handle the registry too well ... even after software is uninstalled, its entries are present in the registry. This registry is loaded into memory on startup, so the bigger it is the slower your system. Thats why a fresh formatted system performs faster.

    just use a combination of Spybot SnD 1.3 and Javacool SpywareBlaster - no hassles, no nags, no memory hogging, highly efficient and best of all, totally free.... u dont have to use AdAware and other tools if u have these two s/w's installed on ur system.... :)

    It is supposed to be the best anti-spyware software. I suppose nobody over here would be interested in helping you in finding the best spyware.

    3>webroot's spysweeper
    4>giant(microsoft) still in beta stage

    use a combination of all of the above coz what one tool can catch the other can't.

    The title of the thread says Best Spyware :shock: So entered out of curiosity :D and found out that its about anti-spyware :lol:

    Anyway, I think Spybot Search and Destroy is the best. Its free and regular updates are also available.
