    Just wondering what good spyware detector programs are out there and that work well. I have heard that Adaware sucks, but I don't know for sure. Could anyone help me find a spyware program that does a thorough job?

    Ad-aware is a Spyware remover by default, you have to use the full version to get the blocker. Sypware Doctor is a good blocker good.

    Personally, I hate blockers, well sort of, because half the time, they have pop up telling you something was blocked, which is annoying too.

    Yup the two programs I like to run Ad Aware and Spy Bot Search and Destroy. Both free and both really good. Or you could be a hardass like E and Sabz and run Linux :p

    Or you can dual boot Linux and Windows and use Windows for working (ok, gaming, but damn it I use PS for some shit) and Linux for surfing, that's mostly what I do.

    Well, I'm not too computer savvy, so I think I'll just keep the Adaware SE and then do Spyware search and destroy.

    thanks everyone
