i am using spy sweeper at the moment and its really good. detects everything and cleans it. Good program.

But just wondering is there any other good programs which can actually block the spyware before entering the computer.

thank you...

Spybot will immunise your computer, which presumably means the same thing, i.e. it will prevent the spyware from loading.

i loaded up adaware and spybot and ran both programmes eg;spybot then adaware then adaware then spybot both with latest updates and found spybot missed a couple of bugs a couple of time.Im still running both programmes but adaware is in the lead at this present time....

Not sure of the details but they use a different scanning system so its not really that one has missed, but more that they make a good team finding different problems.

Spywareblaster and Spyware Guard are the two I have seen recommended the most.

I used to have spywareblaster until Ad Aware found that spywareblaster had been adding it's own ""bots"" to direct X.:O
Since that discovery, I have uninstalled spywareblaster and had it's ""bots"" quarantined, using the good offices of Ad Aware.
So, Ad Aware, you win with me. :D :D
