    Anyone have experience with spybot? Looks like an alternative/in addition to Adaware, etc.

    I searched and saw some mention of it on the forum, but not much.

    Just want to make sure its safe and curious for any experiences with it.

    Yeah, Spybot is a good bit of kit. Pat Kolla has done a great job keeping it up-to-date.

    It has a few false positives and a range of targets wide enough to cover a few things that aren't really harmful... but that's the case with all anti-parasite software really.

    It found 6 more BHO's, a porn dialer and some spyware on my system missed by Ad-Aware. Seems the folks at Lavasoft haven't updates their profile in a long time and are missiing the boat.

    I do recommend you read their help and setup options file as the defaults block cookies from Linkshare -CJ and BeFree.

    Yes I recommend it if you know what you are doing. Found some Morpheus stuff which Ad-aware missed and several Cydoor alerts
