malware

I have spyware blaster to 'shield' my pc from some spyware and both spybot and adaware se to detect and remove it.
I ran panda's free scan and it found two low risk spyware items which my programs did not find.
Is there another good spyware program I could use? Thanx.

I use 3, Microsoft (formerly Giant), Ad-aware, and Spybot Search and Destroy. That's in addition to my AV software and firewall of course.

You can download a 14 day free trial of Ewido from: http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ in my opion much better than ad-aware or spybot. Click update after you download and install, then restart in safe mode and scan.

I also like http://www.bitdefender.com/ click on "scan online" on the lefthand menu. You need to let IE download an active x control for it to work. You may also want to change the setting to "prompt user for action" or it will automaticlly delete any file it thinks is a virus and can't disinfect.
