I have the free version of Spy Sweeper installed on my computer.

The free version isn't update-able so I am considering purchasing the paid version, but I was wondering if there is a yearly subscription fee (like Norton's AV) or is it a one time payment ?

I would also like comments/opinions from anyone who has the paid version as to whether it's worth the money.

BTW I have Adaware, Spybot Search & Destroy, Spyblaster, and Spyguard installed as well as Norton AV & Norton's Internet Security. I keep them all updated.

I hope this doesn't sound like paranoia.

Thanks in advance,

Mary

I am pretty sure Spysweeper uses the subscription model like Norton does. I unfortunately have never tried it, so I can not really tell you if it is good or not.

From your lineup of installed apps, I am not really sure if you need it.

Thanks for the opinions.

I checked and it is a yearly subscription rate. I might have purchased it if the $29.95 was a total price, but it seems a bit much as a yearly subscription.

Thanks again,
