Safe Returner review
Because Safe Returner uses a highly aggressive heuristic engine that can pick false positives, the application and especially its threat findings should be treated with utmost care and eliminated only when you are positively sure that the target is indeed malware. We did not experience any false positives in normal mode, but the fact that there is a threat score pinned to legitimate processes in Expert mode may mislead users into believing that they are actually a threat to the system (despite the warning in the upper part of the screen stating that both legit and malicious items are displayed).

What Spyware/Malware scanners would you recommend for WinXP?
I like to use more than one Spyware/Malware scanner and remover. I used to use Ad-Aware from Lavasoft but that has started getting bloated and I like my utilities to be lean and only do what they do best, I don't care for kitchen sink software.
I have started using Malwarebytes because of this site and I really like it. For my second opinion scan I am currently using Microsoft Malicious Software Removal tool that gets updated the second Tuesday of every month. However the MRT is less than comprehensive and takes a very long time for a full scan.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Yep, I agree Malwarebytes is very good. I don't count Microsoft Security Essentials as a malware scanner though. It's main focus is virus's, although I know that it does catch some spyware and malware as do most current virus scanners.
Microsoft Security Essentials is a new, free consumer anti-malware solution for your computer. It helps protect against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. It's available as a no-cost download for Windows XP SP2 and higher, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
