    A Good 64bit Anti Spyware for Windows 64bit?

    Hello,
    I used to use Spyware Doctor but after I upgraded to 64bit computing (Vista
    Ultimate 64bit) I hae been unable to find a decent Anti Spyware.
    I have tried a couple (Spybot and something else I cant remeber) but found
    them scrappy and not effective in comparison.
    What do you guys recomend?

    A Good 64bit Anti Spyware for Windows 64bit?

    I'm using Symantec's Corporate product. It includes 5 licenses that I end up
    using for 5 different installations (32 and 64 bit). The x64 version doesn't
    have all the same options (i.e. 'Tamper Protection' of the registry). It is
    in the $200 range. The $70 CA product I bought really stunk. I never felt
    like it did anything. BTW Symantec is considered to really slow down systems.

    I've also heard very good things about f-prot. $50 for 10 licenses. I'm
    going to give it a try and have two virus engines scan my computers. I do
    use the MS built in firewall and set the necessary exceptions. I use a more
    powerful firewall at the point of connection to the internet though.

    I also am beginning to use a passive ethernet tap (Snort on Linux) in order
    to profile my traffic.

    Which Symantec product is it? 360? Internet Security? or Anti Virus?
    I already have the Anti Virus but am unsure about the others.

    Yep Ive got the Vista Anti Virus runs like a dream doesnt slow any thing down
    loads really quickly and you can do a scan while you are working if you
    minimise it and it wont cause any grief.
    I didnt think I'd ever say it but well played Symantec!
