Microsoft Security Essentials is the ONLY scanner that found the virus that was accessing my Yahoo email address book and spamming my contacts. I did a "complete" scan which took about an 2 hours but it found it and removed it.

I highly recommend it.

Trend Micro's Housecall, SpyBot, Malwarebytes Anti malware, KKiller, TDSSKiller and ComboFix. None of them found anything.

Spyware scanners and antivirus are really two different products still.

MSE is a quality program, but it's insufficient on its own.
