    I highly recommend "SpySweeper." I downloaded many anti-spyware programs for trials, and 'SS' was the only one to honestly tell me my system contained no spyware. Others ran the gamut from a handful to 1200, yes twelve hundred(!) 'hits.' I knew in advance that no spyware should be found, having run several very well considered programs before making my "investigation." Furthermore, at one site that examines programs, 'SS' is placed #1.

    I am not going to name names; however, even with so called reputable programs, the old adage of "buyer beware" applies.
