    Ewido / AVG Anti-Spyware

    In the past when I would run Ewido, it always found several additional spyware items right after I ran Ad-Adware and Spybot S&D. However lately, the new AVG Anti-spyware is not finding anything at all. Then when I run Adaware it finds 10 to 20 items. Just the opposite of before. Anyone else experiancing this ?

    Depends on what items are being found, are they tracking cookies ? maybe AVG isn't doing tracking cookies ?????

    Anti-Spyware apps pickup different things, for the most part AVG is going to have the best detection for the bad things (trojan/worms).

    Keep running both.

    BTW, what AV are you using ?

    Thanks for the reply Fastgame. Guess I will keep both. I am currently running that free Kaspersky AV. that you recommended a while back. Many thanks, Mike
