SuperAntiSpyware is decent but I dropped it, after paying for the pro version, because I got tired of all the errors in Event Viewer because of their lack of getting drivers that supported 64 bit. They were supposed to have them by the end of '09. Maybe they do have now.

All I've used since October is MSE with Malwarebytes to keep it honest and, (knocking on wood), I've not had a problem. MSE has caught two items on this computer and one on the wife's XP system.

In my opinion if you are confident, you may give up on spybot...
I have free AVG and ZoneAlarm

IMO, if you are going to use that process you are going to have to expect a hit on your ram. That's one of the reasons I quit using it a few years back. At the time I didn't have all that much ram to spare and since then I've found Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes to be lighter and very efficient.

You only need one security app, and a hardware + software firewall. You do not any other apps. Malwarebytes is unnecessary unless your system has been compromised.

when tea timer say x out of y processes blacklisted, and x and and y are different numbers, it means spybot has updated its blacklist, but you havent elected to refresh the protection to include the new stuff.

I use it on occasion but never use tea timer. And always uninstall it after I run it. Malwarebytes is a much better program IMO.http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php Free version. Fabe
