Default Best Real Time AntiSpyware?

Hi,

After all your comments regarding the ZoneAlarm post, i am in need of a real time anti spyware product. I currently scan on a regular basis with Ad-Aware, but would like a real time one.
Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Matt

Use Ad-aware, spybot (enable TeaTimer and SDhelper options) and spywareBlaster.

Remember to do a scan with ad-aware/spybot at least once a week.

Make sure you are fully upto date with your operating systems patches and fixes including the latest WMF threat.

The best one out there by far is AOL's anti-spyware

*waits for laugh*

Seriously if you have ad-aware and spybot:s&d running in tandem - you won't have any problems. Gotta keep them updated and scan on a weekly basis. They're free also.

I think Microsoft is the best.

Ad-aware real time protection you have to pay for.
