    "Nice, but does more than you ask"

    October 31, 2012  |   By jaytee28


    Runs like a dream as a spyware/adware detector, and as such is much better than Spybot and paid stuff like Hitman Pro


    Insists on installing itself on your system as as a startup item and doesn't gibe you the chance of opting out. Also flags up lots of innocent cookies as spyware.


    Has the best intentions, but it's actions in your startup, combined with flagging innocent cookies as spyware does not inspire confidence. Where is a decent spyware tool?

    Hate to break it to you but SUPERAntiSpyware is crap and a glorified cookie scanner.

    Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro, and Emsisoft Anti-Malware Free are the top dogs for on demand scanners. All 3 of those are superior to SUPERAntiSpyware in every way.
