Hi,
Just wondering if anyone could comment wether or not Spy Sweeper (www.webroot.com) is a good program and worth the money?

Thanks!
Andreas

As far as paid programs go, SpySweeper is a good one. As to whether it is better than similar programs, you will get a variety of opinions.

With all the many good, free anti-spyware applications available for overlapping protection, it is simply not worth the money to purchase a commercial application which, also, must be supplemented by other anti-spyware applications.

Webroot SpySweeper is a good program. I recommend using it. The free antispyware programs do NOT come with support. This one does.

If you use the keyword "Komando" on the webroot site, you get 20% off and 2 years worth of service.
