I've been using the free version of Spybot Search and Destroy and also
Spyware Blaster on my PC.

I've just discovered PC Tools Registry Mechanic and Spyware Doctor and ran
the free check - only to discover that there appears to be an awful lot of
spyware that SpyBot hasn't found.

Is it worth purchasing the PC Tools software? How important is a Registry
Cleaner and this Spyware Doctor?

I'm more than a bit paranoid about spyware and viruses, etc, but don't know
that much about it.

Thanks for your help.
