    I also stopped using SpyBot S&D awhile back. It grew less effective and more bloated.

    I have left Windows Defender turned on, I have enabled the extended database in the AV options of ZoneAlarm AntiVirus, and I utilize the Program Control functionality of ZAAV as well.

    If you feel that you need separate anti-SpyWare, you might review this.

    My honest opinion is that if you truely do need a separate anti-SpyWare product, you might do better to reevaluate your computing practices and habits.

    I'm giving Spy Sweeper a try now. :)

    EDIT: Damn! It doesn't work on Vista 64-Bit.

    Yes that's correct. No need to uninstall the entire program. It is useful for other things like it's tool.
