    Ran across this for the first time.
    Any feedback... from a few post/google I see it may not be bad.

    hi, Seeing that you have quite a variety of computers to work on malware removal, I offer this page where you may find some help in deciding about the many spyware removal programs:

    http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm

    There is a little trick at the site, it is a long list of antispyware GOOD and BAD removers...you have to scroll all the way down, read the notes about items they have changed...as some of the former pretty bad ones are coming around and have changed tactics.

    Then there is this one:

    http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads.php?cat=sp#det

    The whole site is devoted to antispyware issues.


    Here is another list of good tools:

    Most places I see info on Xoftspy indicate it to be somewhat questionable in removing malware.
