There really is no "best" one. Each one will find stuff that the others won't. Your best bet is to keep two or three of them around (you don't need a hundred of them) so that if one doesn't find something, the other one probably will.

Also, please don't post all-caps thread titles. There's no need to draw attention to your post--someone will notice it even without the caps.

Yeah, he listed that one, too. It's like he just went around the Internet finding names of anti-spyware applications, including various editions of the same product, and just posted them all here asking which one is the best to save him the trouble of having to test them himself. Problem is, everyone's tastes are different and what is the "best" for one person may not be the best for everyone.

The really funny part is that he listed full version numbers. He's apparently done quite a bit of homework on these applications; you'd think, seeing that, it wouldn't be much more trouble for him to actually test them out.
