Do you remember this mail of mine?

Hi guys
What do you think about Spy Sweeper?
In this site TopTenReviwes, they tell us it wins the gold medal. :thumbsup:
Can you tell me something about it? :flowers: or :trumpet: Thanks.
Regards,
Darthy

Well, today I can tell you something more about this tool.
Yesterday I see one friend of mine install this tool in his computer and after that, its speed felt drastically for less than 1/3 of its normal speed.
He did everithing and finally, after several trials, he had to restore its PC for a date before the instalation of this tool.
Why did this happen? Somebody can tell me something about this? He already write to Webroot to ask why.
Let's wait an answer.
Regards,
Darthy

It all depends on how much system resources he has avaliable (RAM, Processor speed, etc.). For instance, when I had the trial verison, yes I did notice some slow downs (due to its shields and real-time monitoring), but it wasn't the dramatic because I had quite a lot of system resources on hand and ready to use.

I forgot to tell one thing about spy sweeper. It treats spyware doctor like an hostil BHO.

He has, also, a lot of system resources. After all he had to restore its PC, like I said.

Well when I had SpySweeper I didn't feel the need for Spyware Doctor because in my opinion, SpySweeper greatly exceeds Spyware Doctor's powers.
