    "Better than SpyBot"

    November 19, 2009  |   By aln298


    Seemed to work too well -see comments in the Cons section


    This kind of tool is supposed to be invisible. I was always having to answer questions it had ... Custom configuration may have resolved these problems but I just switched to Spyware Blaster


    I have never had a serious maleware problem so I was not as concerned as others might be. If you are having serious/numerous spyware problems you might give Spybot a try. It seemed to be very sensitive - I found it too sensitive. It is possible, with proper configuration. Spybot will work well for you.

    Ooops!! I was reviewing different programs. This review was supposed to be for SpyBot. Between first starting the review and when I entered most of the comments I was distracted.
    Spyware = YES! // SpyBot = No
