Summary:  

With improvements, the latest version of Spyware BeGone by MicroSmarts is more effective and easier to use. But Spyware BeGone cannot yet compete with higher-ranked anti-spyware products because many cost less and offer a stronger feature set.

Grasshopper you have a lot to learn.

Advanced System Potector is another bogus application:

I used Spybot for a long time. False-positives occurred around once every three months.

Based on the advice on the experts here I have uninstalled it.

MBAM (resident) and SAS (on-demand) combine with Avast Pro to fight malware on my system.

Actually, Spybot - S&D usually updates about once a week these days.
