Incidentally, Monger, I now rate AdAware over SpyBot (and comfortably) after a long time rating the reverse.
Seems to me the latest build of AdAware does a much better job than did its predecessors when it comes to detecting and removing stuff. I dunno if AdAware and Spybot really are directly comparable, though. AdAware is a post-fact detection-and-removal tool, Spybot offers active blocking as well as scan-and-removal functions.
While either one alone is better than nothing I think the two together offer greater security than either alone.
BTW, Craven, in your Spybot setup, do you use the "Tea Timer" and "Immunize" functions? "Immunize" seems to work pretty well, but some folks have had problems with "Tea Timer" - I'd be interested to know what your thoughts were. Also, have you given AdAware's "AdWatch" for-fee add-on a try? That one I have mixed feelings about.
