    Spyware Terminator I could never recommend it never found backdoor Trojans like little witch ad ware adverts an etc.. Spyware Doctor with Antivirus did the free version found 3 stuff on one of my Windows Server 2003 today. I could never get the SD and AV alone software to work on Server. Today installing the integrated one SD+AV scan the system found and remove it them using memory cleaner with auto reboot.
