Most of the free spyware programs do not update automatically. Malware bytes I know doesnt unless you register it but you can use the update button so it's not a big deal.

The update function is located in different places in Various programs. In malware bytes it's a tab you click on then a button.

I like the Malware Bytes program miswesternerr suggested. I installed it and found one nasty. It was already quarantined by another program but... it was a bat generic. Those are hard to find without good heuristics for wild cards. havalotta> there's a tab that says updates toward the top. hit that then hit where it says check for updates. The app does it for you. Your database will be at 3037 for today. When it's done, hit the other tab that says scanner and let it run. In SpyBot you hit search for updates. Then pick a site to update at with an American flag and take it from there.

awwww, you're no fun. It was really fun to imagine havalotta going Poof! In a well-organized tasteful puff of smoke, of course.
