Never Mind. Says its free, but for some reason when you run it, it says its only a trial for 30 days...
Though, reading further, it says automatic updates will be turned off (pretty useless for a scanner then huh?), but will still run.
Okay, it may be better than I thought. Currently, it has found 16 tracking cookies Spybot didn't see, after only 1 minute of scanning.
I've been using it for a while now, even mentioned on this forum a couple of times iirc, don't worry about auto updates or resident shield after 30 days, you can manually update and I really don't see the sense in an anti-spyware being resident, just another process to slow down your pc imo.
AVG also has an anti rootkit for free on their site.
