ScanSpyware
www.scanspyware.com

ran on my test machine detected over 600 infected files (LOL OT Wonders why i format so much) which is 100 more than SpyBot S&D and 200 more than AdAware SE and it Claims to be able to demolish the Search-Exe infection (SE.DLL), WildTangant, and Look2Me, also CoolWebSearch

one thing i have noticed they seem to update slow. (last detection Update 3-5-05)

Hi LoLucky, ScanSpyware shows up in The Spyware Warrior List of Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products & Web Sites as using aggressive sales tactics and false positives to get you to buy it. I would avoid it at all costs.

Thanks Ronbo thats why i asked tho i do feel that this site should update their checks. to be more current as this one was last updated 9 months ago.

and if we go by data of nine months ago NO ONE would ever buy Microsoft Products! its called Beta testing and learning from your mistakes :thumbsup:

well i'm done for the week see ya next week.

Which site do you mean? The rouge anti-spyware list is updated continuously and was last updated yesterday (03-17-2005).

Beta products do not get on that list, only a history of dishonest and fraudulent practices will get a product on the rouge list.
