Is this normal?

I run an full AdAware scan and it finds 40 cookies which I then remove. I then immediately run another scan with ScanSpyware and it will find maybe 30 cookies. If I run the AdAware scan second the results are similar. It seems like no program catches all the cookies. Is this normal? Even though I choose the complete or full scanning options, are there some folders that don't get scanned?

Interestingly, I usually find nothing when I run a scan with MS AntiSpyware???

I think it is resolved for now. I uninstalled ScanSpyware and now use SpywareBlaster along with AdAware and MS Antispyware. Any truth to the rumpr that MS will be charging 40.00+ per year for their antispyware program when the beta period expires this summer?

Hello shepard,

If that is indeed true, I can think of some much better programs that would be worth paying for instead.
