The problem is that most people use more than one, so any poll offering a single option is likely to be of limited use, your favourite on its own may not do the job effectively.

Since there are a number of paid for options in the poll many will be using the freeware options, so that too will effect the results.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 24.3.6108 (build 24.3.8975.762) UI 1.0.801/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

Yinyang4evry, you've changed the options in the middle of the poll.
But you did not allow the users to change their vote into the poll settings...

Hi Yinyang4evry1,

There is not such thing as a favorite antispyware program. This is always a combination of programs or solutions, because the ultimate anti malware solution that catches all has not been seen yet. They are all part of the solution. The trio that are used by most: Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D and SpywareBlaster and for quick scans Bazooka. Some use Spyaudit as an online scanner. Then there is a host of other programs that help BHO scanners like ToolbarCop, Startup list programs, etc.

greets,

I like Microsoft Anti-Spyware the most because it auto updates and I'm starting to forget to check for updates for Adaware and Spybot, but lately I've noticed that they are only getting updates every 5-10days  ???
