Default What's a few dollars if a freebie stuffs up your business?

The amount of SpyWare/Trojan programs around is daunting. I offered to put this question to you guys here...

I've been asked to find out what's a good quality Spyware program/s to PURCHASE. He works from home and doesn't feel it would be sensibly to just download a "FREEBIE" from the net. "This is my business man, I want to know I got something that's Top Quality - what's a few dollars if a freebie stuffs up your business."

So there you go...give me a short list of spyware brand names to gather info on for him to pick from. I can't tell what good or junk.

Hpoe you can help...

Microsoft Windows AntiSpyware is a good one but it's still in the beta stage.
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

Lavasoft Adware Professional is also really good in my opinion.
http://www.lavasoft.com/

SpyBot Search and Destory is third on my list of best spyware software.

Lavasoft Ad-aware is barely adequate...

I would strongly recommend.. www.webroot.com - Webroot Spysweeper. A great piece of software that picks up traces, that Lavasoft fails to detect.

Barely adequate why? It picks up traces that lavasoft doesn't even touch. You realize that right? I use both.
