Hello, I need a comprehensive list of anti-spyware software that will & will not function on Windows 7 (64-bit.)

SUPERAntiSpyware claims it does.. but Spyware Doctor I hear won't?? Mods you could really help me out big time.





Thanks. -Scott

Check CNET downloads, and check the specs, usually if it says Windows 7 compatible it will be 64bit as well.

I use Avast, Malwarebytes, Superantispyware and all work on my 64 bit system.

Check CNET downloads

Installing some random programs from CNET wouldn't be a good idea.

nobody said anything about random downloads... usually if you read the reviews, you can have some sense of what is worthwhile or not. I've used the site for years, and the 3 products I referred to and use, are also recommended by this BC website.

I'd just like to clear this up, Spyware Doctor works just fine on Windows 7 64-bit.

Also, I personally use Microsoft Security Essentials 64-bit for my system.
