Great! Where did you get that link from? .
The link works, but the version downloaded is still old one. I think they haven't updated it yet. But thanks for the link . I hope the link stays the same for the new version, and they update it soon.

After following this interesting thread I thought I would try it. (ST that is, not the curry, I already know I like that LOL) but, once again, 64 bit not supported. I'm starting to regret my new system.

Hi Jim
The scanner is 64 bit compliant for XP and Vista but the real time protection is not (yet). Only the paid corporate edition has full 64 bit compatibility. I guess this feature will arrive in the free version sometime soon. Unfortunately, during the research for my review Crawler who make ST were the only people I wasn't able to open a dialogue with. This was one of the questions I wanted to ask them.

Thanks for that MC. Sounds good to me as I don't really want any more "real time" stuff running on my system anyway. So, downloaded and installed from the link you gave, ran a scan and it certainly found some obvious nasties that I didn't want. Thanks for that.
Jim.

Hope this has not come too late but I've only just seen that a new version was released yesterday.

This is the link to the info page:

http://www.spywareterminator.com/news/news.aspx

It has some useful improvements and extra features

I know that Spyware Terminator certainly takes its share of blows from critics per its performance versus the new guys, but I've used it along with Avast for years, practice relatively safe-surfing habits, and my computer has stayed quite clean of nasties. I'd like to think this is at least partially due to ST's resident web shield/scanner with ClamAV and Avast's EXCELLENT protection. Both of these programs tend to have fairly faithful and dedicated fans. I'm very happy that Midnight Cowboy placed this thread.

One warning I will mention for multiple anti-spyware users: my ST's ClamAV component kept finding parts of Malwarebytes' program and identified them as infections (particulary a file called "joke.fakealert" - according to a fellow from Malwarebytes it's part of the MWB installer).

I have yet to try Indian cooking, but am looking for a few Indian vegetarian dishes that are easy to prepare.

Warmest Regards, Kyuzo.

Kyuzo, a couple of quick questions:

1. Why do you use both Avast and ClamAV at the same time? Most people would argue that 2 resident anti-virus's at the same time is not a good idea?

2. Why do you feel a need to run both Avast (which has anti-spyware protection) and Spyware Terminator at the same time?

3. Do you use any manual scanning for spyware with any other products? (such as MalwareBytes or SAS or etc.)

I am not in anyway trying to knock your setup; I am just curious as to your rationale.
