    "How can U rate a product like this?"

    November 16, 2012  |   By daddy9899


    To "rate" Spybot or any other similiar software you need to conduct side by side comparisons on the same computer system and against the same infection. An impossible task. Me thinks that "reviewers" should post just the facts: What happened, How it happened,and what did you do about it. And then give us a summary of the outcome... good and/or bad. The devil is in the details, such as what O/S you are running and what other protection software do you have on board and is everything up to date! So, IMO, take your time before you post a blast instead of a "review"! Please! Thank you!


    see the above pros


    Spybot is a dependable product with excellent Read Me Help and Support. Do you need both Spybot and Malwarebytes and Avast and AVG and this and that all running at the same time? I vote no. IMO, more is less. Thanks for listening!
