Hi Ben,

This survey only included those applications which use dictionaries to 
clean their systems.  HJT is an involved tool that is best used with 

Ad-Aware and SpybotS&D can be used safely thanks to their reference files.

This is why HJT and others like Winpatrol were left out of the poll.

And for the last statement, you are right.  Look at download.com and how 
they use three products today to test files on their site.

I use a combination of Ad-aware, Spybot S&D and Hijack This (when it is needed).

Hijack this is the most thorough if you know what to look for.

But any one tool usually will not clean completely in my experience.
