Dayz, if you have alot of spyware, I usually stop the scan after a hundred or so then quaratine those, then rescan the rest. Sometimes if there's too much it'll freeze up the program sp I quarantine then in sections instead of all the same time. Spybot's known to freeze up from time to time. I usually scan 1st with Adaware as it doesn't freeze as often, then scan the 2nd time with Spybot.

I tested the new Micro$oft spyware scanner Beta, it didn't find anything where other programs found 20 or so spyware and Adaware found 50. It does have a nice scheduler (my only complaint with Adware is that it doesn't). Spybot has an auto scan sceduler as well.
