Default Which is the best Security Program?

Among these, which is the best?

SpySweeper from Webroot Software Inc.

SpyCatcher from tenebriel

Spyware Killer from Cosbi

Stealth Surf

Pest Control from Computer Associates

If two are equally good, just choose one that looks a little better (site, box, etc...)

SpySweeper has been rated as the best by many and in my experience, it's lived up to the hype.

I never heard of the other programs, so i'll go with SpySweeper.

And Ad-Aware...and CounterSpy. They all get my vote, cause they find different spyware and a lot of it too.

lol, get more than 1. I say get Spybot, Ad-Aware and a program which has protection against spyware. You know - when it runs in the background.

I'm using Ad-Aware SE Personal, Spybot and Webroot SpySweeper. You need more than one for sure though. Try scanning when you're having a meal or brushing your teeth etc. lol

CounterSpy's very good though.

Nah, i'd say SpySweeper or CounterSpy. Ad-Aware SE Personal is the only ad-aware worth getting imo - the pro version is bettered by SpySweeper and CounterSpy.

Does that include Ad-Watch? And does it take up a lot of resources? That's a problem with SpySweeper and CounterSpy - they slow down your PC and take a while to do full scans.
