Hi i am aware this topic may (or may not) have been discussed to death but a simple search did not reveal much ...

So here goes - a few people on GZ and elsewhere highly recommend using adaware + spybot s&d and lots of sense for their spyware defence ... however i'm only on windows defender and those 2 programs do not work on my vista 64 ...

what do you guys (owners of vista x64) use? (currently i've been using my xp dual boot running zone alarm antispyware as my ministry of defence)

Involuntary autocorrect in operation on mobile device. Apologies in advance.

Ad-aware does not work with x64. However Spybot S&D will.

Spybot 1.5 will. IMO AdAware2007 is not worth the disk space nor download time.
See the spybbot forums for some more info:
If you want realtime antispyware you'll most likely have to pay for it or use Defender.
Superantispyware, AVG AS, Asquared, and SpywareTerminator have applications that should work on Vista 64. Or you could try upgrading to XP. Laughing

I'm using Windows Live One Care 2, works on x64 and does everything in one package.
