i.e. Bazooka Adware and Spyware Scanner -

Has anyone used this? I have spywareblaster and spybot - any harm in having a 3rd?

Thanks- I should have put it as the Primary one( feel slightly sick at what it found-hope my firewall protected me)..it got rid of the dregs of Teknum I had not been able to rid of before.. so please use Adaware primarily.

I would agree with AdAware first as it seems to pick more problems than Spybot.

Spyware software is unlike anti-virus as you click a shortcut to run them, rather than running all the time in the background, so they tend not to interfere with each other. Also, some programs miss some spyware and others will miss other ones, so multiple programs sweep the system cleaner.

I use Ad Aware, Spybot S&D, Spysweeper and System Mechanic Spyware remover. Some might consider this overkill, but no problems & I am more confident I have a clean system.
