Microsoft Anti Spyware beta

It looks to work well, it even detects some adware that adaware didn’t remove.

It is said by many people that using more than one anti-adware program is the best way for they all don’t catch everything. Joel suggests why Microsoft Anti Spyware wouldn’t catch everything: conflicts of interest.

A lot of money is made by redistributing spyware/adaware/malware on people’s computers. They could easily bribe some anti-adware software developers to ignore their adware.

I just got to find an anti-adware program that is proffesional enough to clean my computer, and isn’t bribed to leave some.

The problem is that there are a lot of anti-adware programs, most of them are adware themselves.
