    I always use spybot first, then ad-aware for cleanup (data miner cookies), that's always worked for me. So, in other words, I use both.

    Same here using both is the best method, because one can cleanup what the other missed. Mainly becuase one looks for things the other was not programmed for.

    Yep- use both!!!
    SpyBot finds alot of program history access too. This feature isn't part of Ad-Aware. The Plus version is better since it includes Ad-Watch. They are working on a cookie blocker add-on for a future up-date.

    Plus Spybot SD seaches for bots, and a load of other things Ad Aware doesn't. The reverse is also true, Ad Aware also find things that Spybot SD doesn't.

    You are better wit both.
