do you need to uninstall older version first or can you just upgrade/install the new version?

According to Corinne (cited above) the installer will recognize a prior version and prompt you to uninstall it before it will install the new version. I myself prefer to manually uninstall old versions first.

Installed it last night. I haven't had any detected items for months, and the new version found 1 shared cookie. Sometimes I wonder if it is the SW makers way of showing you that their protection is better than all the other protection on your system.
When I first installed MS Anti-spyware, it also found some things that the other layers of protection on my system did not.

For now, I guess that is why we go with the multilayered approach to protection.

Unlike viruses and trojans, where there there are precise definitions, in the case of spyware there are no sharp lines of distinction. Consequently, each software company will have slightly different criteria for what consititutes spyware, and different sets of definition. This explains why one application will find instances that another will bypass.
