I have Ad-aware SE Plus, Spybot S&D 1.3, Aluria Spyware Eliminator, and was in the process of trying Xsoft Spy. I downloaded it and it found the registry entries pertaining to Aluria and marked them as spyware. When I open Aluria's protection section, I find that they have placed Paretologic.com on the restricted site list in IE 6. In addition, they have placed clickbank.com in the restricted zone, where XsoftSpy can be purchased. Is this just underhanded blocking of competition, or are one or both pgms spyware? :(

there has been an "explosion" of apps claiming to remove crapware, and most are carp**.

i would stick with lavasofts Ad Aware, Spybot Search and Destroy, Web Root Spy Sweeper or Pest patrol.

Thanks for the general info. I was kinda looking for specific knowledge about these two. Aluria has been well reviewed by PC Mag.
