    I'm running Spybot Search&Destroy atm. But I read a big anti-spyware review the other week and they mentioned a different program saying it was the best out of all of them. Problem is I can't remember what it's call.

    Can you guys list your anti-spyware solutions here? I might remember it when I see it's name listed here. Thanks.

    I don't use any, but you might be thinking of Ad-Aware or PcTools Spy Doctor.

    Also check out this thread. Maybe it mentions the name of the software you're looking for:

    p.s.: I used to buy Webroot's Spy Sweeper as well when I had to use a commercial product (for business) and it did a great job back then.

    On most of my computers I have:
    • Spywareblaster
    • Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

    Just recently I switched a few computers from Eset to Microsoft Security Essentials. Nice free antivirus and seems to do the job well.
