We tend to overly rely on our anti-spyware and security software. For instance, we download the latest commercial security tool and then setup the application to automatically scan for Trojans and spyware that may have installed on our system, at the end of every working day.

This is fantastic and works well if we’re in the office. However, we often forget that we can be out of the office, other people use our computer or we simply finish work early, ending the day before the anti-spyware tool starts its automatic check. Result? Our system is only checked randomly, which means that the Trojan could have used that time to access our system and track our online activity, then reported our personal information.

SUPERAntiSpyware is another anti-spyware tool, but the free version requires you to manually check your system. It will look for and detect the latest worms, Trojans and other problematic applications, but it won’t block these on a ‘real-time’ basis, nor can it schedule to check on an automated basis. You’ll need to perform these tasks manually.

This is the ‘free’ version. The Professional edition will schedule, automatically check for Trojans and will update definitions automatically.
