I'm sorry, I don't understand the slowdown you're experiencing as Spybot is not a resident program, it just scans when you want it to and if you immunize, it just writes to the hosts file to reject these programs from loading in the first place.
SpywareBlaster is the same, it asks you if you want to change your home page but doesn't run in the background either. Can you please tell us how Spybot slows your system down? I'm curious as I have never seen that. Thanks.
BTW, with XP SP2 along with AVG/ZA free all I get from a Spybot run is cookies, which I could care less about. I even stopped running Ad-Aware as it was a waste of time IMO, just gave me the same info as Spybot plus a few other cookies.
