Its all paid for. But why the registry cleaners? On the other thread you addressed the ccleaner vs. window washer item, and since I paid for spyware doctor, i will keep it.

Now, i will dump the avg. i will try the etrust for a year. if i dont like it, i can always go back, and if it is as good as you say, i can buy the paid version.

And about the spyware guard. I see it promoted on a lot of sites. Do you have a reasoning behind dumping it? Its just that there are so many conflicting opinions I like to know the reasons for them.

as for the ewido, is that a trial version? should i buy the full version, or is the trial (after the full period expires) still pretty good?

thanks! ;)

oh, does etrust not do what ewido does? thanks. ;)

G'day Lordoftheweb,

I'll think you'll find that most people (and I'd say most of the folks on this forum) use CCleaner as a registry cleaner.

If you're not aware, you can find it here CCleaner

Cheers ;)

so this is my new list:

Window washer

ccleaner

etrust

spybot

adaware

spyware doctor

spyware blaster

ie spyad

zone alarm firewall

1 click maintenance

windows registry repair pro

tune up utilities 2004

executive software diskkeeper

firefox with firetune

ewido

i figured since i already have spyware doctor, no need for msas-it would just be overkill with 4 anti spyware products already. also, windows washer is paid for, so why not keep it. it doesnt use much resources.

i may add cwshredder. other than that, i am thinking i am good. punk.gif

Ermm, just a quick question here.

Doens't CCleaner have an inbuilt registry cleaner function? Or have I been deceiving myself about its functionality?

Cheers ;)
