    Although I voted for "only useful sometimes", I wouldn't want them not to be there. I think it's a great feature.

    I voted very useful I study them, I memorize them, I trace the buggers in the system search and learn their ways When they rear their ugly heads in other anti spyware progs, I kill them with full knowlege of the consequences. Spybot S&D is the master ninja. May the force be with you!

    I have also learned what S&D leaves alone and can guess why, because reg cure and xoftspy did a great job at dicing my system into ribbons (thank goodness for restore options).

    It is a learning process and S&D and AVG have been the most informative professors...

    Default very useful, sometimes

    The thing about them is that the entries are so long, I can't always read the whole path. That is what makes them less useful.

    I only use it sometimes, but i still consider the feature to be essential, as education is the key!
