SpywareGuard 2.2 versus Spyware Guard 2008 & 2009

SpywareGuard 2.2 versus Spyware Guard 2008 & 2009

SpywareGuard 2.2 versus Spyware Guard 2008 & 2009

I see SpywareGuard 2.2 touted as a good free real-time antimalware app that makes a great compliment to SpywareBlaster. But can anyone confirm that for me, and that it's definitely a different app than Spyware Guard 2008 & 2009? It had better be, because the latter is said to actually be a sophisticated rogue antispyware. Check these links out:

And assuming SpywareGuard 2.2 is OK, will it run with Avast Free Antivirus 5.0.418?


RE: SpywareGuard 2.2 versus Spyware Guard 2008 & 2009

spywareguard has not been updated since about 2003, so spywareguard 2008-9 must be malware masquerading on the name of the previous good security application also made by javacool software.

Spywareblaster basically covers what spywareguard did and a bit more!

Well then, can you recommend a good CURRENT free real-time antimalware app?
