I've tried it, and it seems to work okay, however, I'll need to use it a bit more before I can say for sure. I'll most likely end up sticking with ad-aware and spybot, though.

i have been using it just now and its excellent, it can block spy-ware when it gets on your PC and block them from installing tool bars on IE

Yeah. It is pretty good! I've been using it for a few days now and if I didn't need Kazaa I'd have no Spyware on here at all.
