Security MS AntiSpyware vs Ad-Aware vs SpyBot - review by
Here is a comparison between these three spyware/adware removal tools. So far all three are freeware. However the Microsoft program may not be free for long. Why should Microsoft charge us for spyware removal that is mostly caused by vulnerabilities in their software? So they can keep on getting paid to make faulty software?
I've made up my mind. I will not use MS AntiSpyware unless they keep a freeware version available. I mean a true freeware version. "Freeware is defined as software that is available for download and use at NO costs, it is NOT shareware, it is NOT trialware, not a demo and contains no adware, spyware or any malware that contains intrusive components."
