Yahoo! Anti-Spy
« on: July 30, 2005, 10:21:42 PM »
I've downloaded it today. http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=15307.msg129629#msg129629  Recently I've found that I can use Yahoo Anti-Spy without that stupid toolbar.  ;D  But I want to ask your opinion about it? Is it worth to keep that program? Polonus, any comments? Thanks!  ;)

By the search results I can see it wasn't discussed here before...  :-\

This program rarely get any updates, I like how fast it scans but Spybot or Ad-aware and detect spywares that Yahoo Antispyware can already detect and more.

Hi i have both yahoo antispy and microsoft one, because i use yahoo as my main homepage and all e-mails i leave it on to scan them, so if you feel happy with it leave it.

Yep, now I think it's enough.  ;D As Yahoo Anti-Spy is not the thing, which disturbs my life, so I don't mind it's on my PC.  ;)
