Anti virus only...  I know it's not common here but I'm tired of updating security apps.  I might be relying on Returnil too much nowadays.

I use SAS and malwarebytes (both on-demand) so more than one antispyware for me.

Hi Omid,

I answered too XD

Well I completed the poll. For the record it is MBAM on demand and resident.

MBAM as a resident module seems to play very nicely with Avast. I have yet to experience a problem.

Best wishes,

The votes don't translate to what is the best or worst antispyware.

I voted for SAS Free (on-demand), but I depend on the built in antispyware of avast!.

The poll wasn't done right, those voting for an on-demand antispyware were like me, relying on avast!'s antispyware module.  This is avast!'s support forum. ;)

and I did not ask what's best antispyware, I asked avast! forum members to find "most popular antispyware" that "avast! users" are using.

Thanks for reply.

I didn't say you did, but many may interpret it that way.

For sure MBAM can find some false positive because of his heavy heuristic but with the ignore button u cant have no problem :)

@Mr.Agent: yes, maybe! it's what I've not seen, but maybe it does, because you have seen it yourself :)
