After 6 years of faithful service, my hard drive died a few weeks ago. I bought another Gateway and it was recommended to me that I get Spy Sweeper.
I had never ran any Spy tool up until now, choosing just to use Anti-Virus Software. I had wondered if Spy Sweeper would be redundant.
Well, I have Spy Sweeper 188.8.131.528 and within the first few days of having my new computer, this software caught 3 incidents of spyware that my Anti-Virus never detected!
This tool sweeps files, registry, cookies...everything. It will quarantine first, and then you can choose to delete it.
My system is FAST, and I've not seen Spy Sweeper act unusually in any way, nor has it taken up too much memory. (I have AMD Athlon, 64 X2 dual core processor 3800+ with 1.87 GB of RAM--running on XP.) I have all 12 recommended shields running at all times.
Spy Sweeper will sweep every week, but you can choose to sweep anytime. Sweeps, for me, have only taken 5-6 minutes.
My experience has been very positive with Spy Sweeper, especially when I saw it catch several spyware that my Anti-Virus *didn't* pick up. Very affordable software for the kind of protection it provides, in my opinion.
