I see SpywareGuard 2.2 touted as a good free real-time antimalware app that makes a great compliment to SpywareBlaster.

It had better be, because the latter is said to actually be a sophisticated rogue antispyware. Check these links out:
I am creating this thread after getting really frustrated. The two other threads I started on this topic were closed before I got my question answered. I was asked to post in other threads on the topic which were all closed and my question was not answered in any of those threads either. I feel someone is stonewalling any discussion about this topic.
This morning, (last evening, American time), I posted a link to Stallman's rant on Ubuntu as spyware.

Someone I know said he had put spyware on my computer. Is he talking crap? I've been using Ubuntu 12.04 for nearly 3 years now and I've never seen any type of spyware, remote keyloggers or RATS (remote access tools) and likewise, backdoors. I've searched several Ubuntu forums and nothing. Other than that Amazon thing.
