...

As I said in your "best anti-spyware" thread, there is no "best" one. It's all a matter of personal preference, really; what one person thinks is the best might not be for someone else.

And again, like I said before, please refrain from posting threads with all-caps titles. It's annoying and immature.

NOD32

I agree with Bruce, there's no "best", it all comes down to your preferences and needs. NOD32 has served me well so far.

Same here, I use NOD32.

Same here, I use NOD32.

However, a decent free one (so I am told, never used it much myself, but it scores OK on the detection rankings) is Avast!

The main reason I initially looked at it is that it can run off a U3 drive and a BART CD:

Hope this helps.

False Positives

Careful with Avast as it will routinely have false positives in the various portable apps. This has happened at least 4 times in the last year. And Avast's default is to delete the file when you run it.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
