I've had a hard time finding good reviews, so I wrote one. With Norton Ghost I had the same testing point each time, and compared results for the most popular free applications: http://www.vafrous.com/articles.php?request=3

To know which apps are best and not a rip off Read about Rogue/Approved Anti Security apps. Thats the list, no other to be considered in this forum.

The none of the four programs listed are on the rogue list. The first two have free trials but are not free to keep.

mix_master_mike, is that your website? Are you an affiliate for Spyware Doctor and Spy Sweeper? It's interesting that the one with the lowest rating is at the top of the list. I agree with your statement that there is no one solution for spyware problems.

Suzi, that is indeed my website. I have no affiliation whatsoever to any of the anti-spyware products in my review other than I commonly use them on the job.

Thanks, that's good to know. We've had a couple of people post here who were affiliates of the programs they were reviewing which is almost guaranteed to make their reviews biased. That's why I asked. I looked around your site too - nicely done.
