    Hey guys,

    I have used Adaware forever as my spyware scanner, but lately Adaware has been skrewing up by not being able to read its own definition files.

    I switched to Spybot today, but i am confused by this program

    Adaware scans took a few minutes to finish, but when i run spybot the scan seems really short . . . is this normal??

    I have no problems with spybot. I've noticed as well that Spybot scans tend to take a little less time than adaware.

    I use both. They each find things the other doesnt, and the SpyBot scan is shorter, go to customize and choose which folders/directories whatever... to scan, you might not have all checked.

    MS antispyware seems to work better than both of those.

    And i was really surprised when i thought that.
    I figured i was alone, guess not.
    I install that on my "client's" computers since it's 'free'.
