Techies, I'm calling on the spyware experts on this newsgroup. I recently had a customer who had nasty spyware issues. I typically use Ad-Aware 2007, Spybot Search & Destroy and AVG Anti-Spyware. I explained to the customer that you need to use 3 anti-spyware utilities as there are different types of spyware. I then explained what each one of the 3 I recommend checks for. In the case of Spybot it's very good at getting the "nasty" types of spyware, the ones that try to change or add some kind of functionality on your computer but end up corrupting it. Then Spybot hung. I tried in vain to get around it (i.e. Safe Mode, unchecking sticky detection rules, ... ) but couldn't. He then asked what a good substitute for Spybot is. Frankly, I couldn't answer his question. The only one I know that might check for the same types of spyware as Spybot would be Super-Antispyware but I'm not sure. Any suggestions?
