Offering humble opinions about antispyware

Kathleen Atkins

Lounge member LesF used to trust Spybot. But with the appearance of error messages and recalcitrant updates, he’s lost faith in it.

So he seeks recommendations for a replacement spyware detector in the Other Applications forum.

Happily, fellow Loungers are willing to post their experiences with, and opinions of, a range of products. You can certainly benefit from the discussion.
