I've been a big fan of Spybot S&D for several years, but it needs a refresh.
If you have 1.2 million definitions, you BETTER have a fast scanner or intelligent scanning algorithyms. Unfortuantely, it doesn't. It's way too slow, and I'm looking for alternatives. The main program freezes a lot, especially on old slow computers I sometimes must use it on. It's even slow and occasionally freezes up on my personal machine, which is top notch. Time to re-write the main app from the ground up!
As for the definitions, they're badly bloated but probably the most complete out there. 4 stars for the definitions, 3 stars for the scanner!

Easy to use, and takes care of the problem. Excellent program all around. I suggest to all friends and family, especially those without much PC understanding.

"Now really worth the download."
Assume you meant "Not" - Totally disagree. Your points are valid IF someone uses the product ONLY to protect against the "latest and greatest" as you say. This program provides so much more, and is a great supplement to real-time protection (commercial or otherwise).
