I've been searching for an antispyware for a very longtime!
me too, all days I'm living in security forums!

Malwarebytes Antimalware (On-Demand) ;)
Thank you tech

MBAM on demand .
thanks for reply

But the problem is that most of them are free but gives you only one shield!
I've been trying to find one which has good protection and removal and it is 10Bit Security 360
but I think security is not cheap to use only free programs to protect our computers, IObit is a well known company, but still it's not a trusted antispyware.

Umm i think its not 10bit but IObit Security 360^^

How do we take a photo of my desktop and put it in a topic?
Maybe you should start a new topic for new questions.
See how: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=8982.0
You can use Gadwin PrintScreen to get a screenshot (http://www.gadwin.com/printscreen/) or the free version of WinSnap 1.1.10 (http://www.filehippo.com/download_winsnap/?2173).

I use the MalwareBytes on demand scanner. The main reason is they seem to be staying on top of the newest threats better than the others.

A year ago I would have said SuperAntiSpyware. I also used to use smitfraudfix back then but the whole smitfraud thing seems to have died down in my world.

Malwarebytes 1.39 Free is On-Demand so +1 for him i wouldnt use real time if i got my AV. Spybot S&D done great in my old cpu but no deleted all. Windows Defender not bad but still decent on detection but still i turn it on for like if he catch something that the other wont. So im happy with my kit.

I prefer mbam to SAS.  Mbam has more fp's, especially stupid fp's.

Thanks YoKenny for the nice answer :)
today I tested Ad-Aware after a long time, let it to scan my hard drive, else than some funny and very worse false positive and very low detection rate it could not do a good job.
SUPERAntiSpyware never found anything in my computer still after long time
but I like Spyware Terminator, I use it only as on demand scanner and the latest version is much more stable and also has a good detection rate (if you ignore Flase Positives!!) very fast scanning and high detection rate.
and about SpyBot S&D, it has helped me in my paste and it has no background process, so I don't uninstall it and ignore it in my computer if one day I needed that!
but I don't use Microsoft Security Essentials because it has conflict with my computer configuration. and also I've removed WinPatrol from auto-start because I've other programs which has WinPatrol features too.
