    Windows Defender whouldn't be at No.8 position but below that as I never saw it catching any spyware applications. I purpously installed a few spyware softwares in my computer just to check if or not the anti-spyware software catches it and Windows Defender was the only that didn't catch any. I personally feel Ad-Aware and Spysweeper are the best...

    Windows Defender is better than any other antispyware.

    ZdNet and PCMag and all big companies always favour Zone-Alarm and i dunno why...and as for this rating i give balls to it!
    ad-aware and especially Zonealarm is nowhere in anyone's top-ten list!
    Za's anti-spyware is good more at prevention than is curing and detection!
    In my view,
    1.Spysweeper,
    2.Spyware Doctor,Ewido
    3.Spybot S&D,
    4.counterspy/Ad-aware
    5.Pc-Cillin Anti-Spyware,
    Sorry this topten-review and other site s mis-lead you,goto pcmag.com or pcworld.com for better knowledge.

    aug has changed things :)
    some latest (aug) reviews etc suggest that that the evolving malware market have left adaware/spybot/WinDefender in the dust, now spysweeper, spywaredoctor, ewido rulz !

    Do you really need antispyware?

    Yes, antispyware is as necessary as antivirus.

    My personal favourite is Spyware Doctor. I dislike Windows Defender because it takes a hell lot of time to scan the whole system.
