SpywareGuard

SpywareGuard provides a real-time protection solution against spyware that is a great addition to SpywareBlaster's protection method.

An anti-virus program scans files before you open them and prevents execution if a virus is detected - SpywareGuard does the same thing, but for spyware! And you can easily have an anti-virus program running alongside SpywareGuard.

Features Listing: Fast scanning engine
Scans exe and cab files - the two most popular file types for distributing spyware
Signature-based scanning - for known spyware (list)
Heuristic/generic detection capabilities - some spyware programs can be detected even if the code undergoes significant changes
Small size - with a small size and small definition sizes, download and updates are quick
SG Control Panel - provides easy access to help and integration options
SG LiveUpdate - provides an easy updating solution
Spyware files are blocked before being opened or run - they are not simply shut down after they are loaded in memory (and after they have performed their tasks)
The full path to the spyware executable is provided on the alert screen
Once a spyware file is detected and blocked from running, the options are provided to either continue or to delete the spyware file
It's a free download

SpywareGuard is compatible with:
Windows 98, ME, NT4, 2000, XP

SpywareGuard is freeware / donationware.

It costs considerable time and money to keep SpywareGuard updated. All I (the author) ask is that you make a donation if you like the program and are able to do so.

ladyjeweler...

Thanks for the info, , it looks to be a good program. :)

Small size - with a small size and small definition sizes, download and updates are quick

Yes it is...

After the install I also noticed that SpywareGuard also runs from startup so that you can expect to see a line entry for it in msconfig along with an icon for it in the systray.

I thought it wouldn't hurt to mention that small detail. ;)
