Give Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware a look. Our malware experts are now recommending it above most others.

If you want real-time protection, get SpywareGuard, I am quite sure that is far superior than Terminator's protection.

The truth is at the the present state I look suspiciously at all antimalware programs. The reason is that I see many computers with some of the most familiar names of malware programs and they are full of high quality pest. I see fully udated Nortons, McAfees, Nod32, Ca and others and it cause me to trust none of them. Personally I think that free programs are as good as any commercial ones.
I consider this thread important and would like to add few questions with the original poster's permission:
1: What is real time protection? Is it the limit a program puts on registry changes, enabling the user to accept or deny a change, or is there more to it.
2: Which, in your opinion, is superior: Tea Timer of Spybot, SpywareGuard, Spyware Terminator. I avoid using Tea Timer because it floods you with messages that are pretty annoying. I would consider my stand if I have answers to the above questions.
3: I also have Spywarebluster installed in my computer. As you know, besides manual updating there is nothing that you have to do. No scans nothing. Also, you don't get any feedback from this program. As far as I am concerned it could be a joke or a fake. Contrary to my skeptic nature I keep it running because I read good critics about it but none demostrate any parameter by which you can judge it's value.What is your opinion? I removed and installed it so many times that it can do the process by now without my interference.

Spyware Terminator has an option called HIPS which does what you describe in your post. I enabled it and it looks very good. It opens a message with the name of the suspicious file. You can leave the message open and google to check what the file is, then block or allow it. Excellent.
