Jim, this is far superior to any of the above; http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html

The free version works fine.

Not really any reviews on Sb,Mr mark....I think I will just uninstall SpyWareBlaster AND SpyBot, just use "SAS Corrected"
only as suggested.
Is there an email notification on HTG when post is answered or replied to, via email,,, please....Thanks again,,,much appreciated...jim

Sorry Jim, we don't have that facility.
If I'm watching a particular post I have it open in another tab and have it reload every 30s (Firefox)

No email notification. Just have to check in.

I like to add Malwarebytes Antimalware in addition to the SAS. Neither are real time and can be run at will.

Thanks for all the much appreciated help and advice. I had not even thought of the tab left open idea, I have no problem keeping an eye out for answer, seeing as my attention span needs frequent supervision...Thanks again guys....Jim

Spywareblaster is fine. Just update it on a weekly basis. Spybot, too heavy on resources a while back, get rid of it.
