    SpySweeper is said to be a resource hog. That could be the reason for it freezing esp when scanning large files ....

    I've used SpySweeper 5.5 for some months in my desktop PC running XP PRO (Intel Core Duo and 4 GB RAM DDR2) together with Windows Defender + Zonealarm +Kaspersky antivirus 7.0 (1 year ago).
    First of all it was not a good a good idea to use two antispyware with real time protection on but I wanted to try anyway.
    SpySweeper is a good antispyware even though it eats too much memory and slown down your system.


    Thanks to God I use Acronis True Image too

    one day i was thinking of ditching spysweeper for something else, but because i have acct there as well as having updated definitions every week or month, it would mess up security patterns on comp
