Microsoft Anti-Spy Beta

I am using it and loving it! Why you ask? Because it validates most of my suspicions about, Who is who in the intrusive software biz.Finally, I have found an Anti-spy utility; that is easy to use and understand, immediately! Has all the features I knew I needed.
First night: 9 baddies found on my system! My favorite Yahoo anti-spy; never found them(no wonder it ran such a quick scan)! MASB not only finds them, but FINALLY, I get a clearer and more understanding description about the bugger and what to do about it. Googles toolbar continues to attempt and install itself, without my permission. Interesting how; when I type a search in my Yahoo homepage, all the resulting links, lead to a google search page? Are these two Giants having a war I haven't heard about? Google is the one single BHO/searchbar app that MASB cannot remove. Yes Microsofts Anti-spy says Google is there without permission and a severe threat. It found two trojans and FINALLY FINALLY killed that NewDot.net cannot find it's dll window! HOORAY!!!It definitely solved alot of my WIN32 issues. THings that Adaware SE and Yahoo's Anti-spy never found.
Second night I had MASB installed it did it's scheduled scan and found 6 more buggers attempting to install themselves! Forget Spybot S&D; it never does anything. I had the same results as Mucka did, from an earlier post in this forum. Teatimer/enabled has never stopped a thing for me, just took up space.
