Spyware vs Viruses:
http://www.squidoo.com/spyware-vs-virus

Not all AV's have anti-spyware built in, usually used for marketing to get you to buy their other AS products.

Ex. Avira free doesn't have anti spyware, but avast and comodo have both built in

*Sigh of relief* I have Avast! (and I love it).

I guess so, but maybe another person who didn't think of searching for it (like me) found these posts, and they helped him.

If you rely on other people to do the leg work for you then you will never grow and learn. Basic principle of education.

     SuperAntiSpyware wins hands down even as an on-demand scanner (free version).  I use Spybot S&D as a third opinion (and not too often at that).  The other antispyware app that I also rely on aside from SAS is MBAM.

If you have Antivirus, why do you need AS?  Does the AV program find spyware, and does the AS program find virus?  What is the difference between spyware and viruses?

Because the majority of AV's weak points are Antispyware (and in that area), And an AV might detect something (not virus related), but can't remove it or some what. That's what SAS & MBAM are therefore, Where there detection rates are superb to what AV's miss.

And what exactly did Spybot find? Cookies. Spybot is old and outdated. There updates only come once a week or so. It scans very slow and uses alot of CPU time doing so. SAS and MBAM update every single day and are both extremely light. Like 3 said, 5 years ago Spybot and Adaware were where it was at. But now SAS and MBAM is where its at.

i can give you the whole list it found, just gotta find the log file that it saved on my dad's pc
