Interesting.  Spybot used to be the one recommended by all the reviews a few years ago, has something changed?

Yes time, it used to be good years ago, things change, malware changes and Spybot hasn't really kept pace. Not to mention we are starting to see compatibility issues with spybot (and Teatimer) and avast 6.0.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.2.6003 (build 22.2.7013.717) UI 1.0.697/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security
