    in my trials I found an interesting called malwarebytes (free version)
    at http://www.malwarebytes.org/
    I tested it and ran it on 7 computers (xp and vista).
    Works fine. It seems to get rid of windowsxp2009 and also uses very little
    resources.
    I have it as a backup to Superantispyware Pro (you can never have enough
    antispyware programs)
    It does manual updates and you run it manually.
    I joined their forum to see what it was all about before I downloaded and
    installed it
    again, as a backup program it looks pretty good.

    :)

    I installed and ran it last week, and I was pretty impressed.
    However, it found a false positive (in a program that I have used for
    more than 10 years), and there is a link to report false positives. But
    when it shows the website, there is no place to report false positives.

    Go to:
    'More Tools' tab and click 'Report False Positive'
    --or--

    I've been using it since August or so in all the PC's that I maintain for my
    family and friends. It found stuff on my sister's machine that none of the
    others -- WD, SAS, Spybot S&D -- did and cleaned it.
