I've been using Spybot SandD for years. I had some trouble when I first started using it but it has become very simple and effective over the years.
If used along with other software recommended on the Optimize Xp page you can count on it being effective,
I've downloaded it for other people and after the first scan they were always impressed. It's unbelievable how much crap this program weeds out.
I usually run it 1x wk letting it update automatically when it is opened. I immunize and run the scan which finds a few items once in awhile. After the initial scan and immunize it only finds a few items because it keeps the bad stuff out fairly effectively. I, of coarse, use other protections as well.
If you have the means, I recommend sending the developer a donation and a note of thanks for a great program that has made weblife safer.
Excellent Program / Very Effective
