    I have Windows Defender running in the background, but for what?
    Today I ran a full scan with SpyBotS&D, Adaware, SuperAntispyware and
    Defender. They should all be up to date.
    Only SpyBot picked up eUniverse Powersearch as being spyware.
    Does this mean the others are 'not worth a light' or if not why not?

    Hi Jim S
    Different ones seem to pick up different items.
