"THIS IS NOT THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF THIS PROGRAM!!!"

July 23, 2007  |  By xivspartanvix

 |  Version: A-squared Free 1.6.5

Pros

Go to A-Squared's website and download version 3.0. It contains a new skin/look, it updates everyday, and it's free of course, and it is one of the best malware removal programs out there!

"This is terrible!"

July 16, 2007  |  By i_test_to

 |  Version: A-squared Free 1.6.5

Pros

Not the software. The fact that the version offered here is so out dated. The "Vista" version which also works great on "XP" is 3.0.? something or other. It is the best spyware, malware scanner offered for free anywhere. It has somewhere around 780.000 signatures and a great detection rate not to mention a great interface. I use it and wouldn't be without it in my arsenal.

Cons

No active protection or automatic updates.

"total bias on this apps review"

July 16, 2007  |  By DARK_WILEY

 |  Version: A-squared Free 1.6.5

Pros

i find no "frustration" in installing this app. if low risk adeware is what you're looking for.... no a squared isn't the app you want. if real nasties are. then yes, it's you huckleberry. and once again, dont bother downloading any software by this publisher here. do it from the publlisher's site. EMSI SOFTWARE. the offerings here are out of date, especially the free version. how cnet can possibly say that adaware is better than this is beyond me........oh, never mind silly me. this doesn't catch nearly as many as those dreadfully nefarious "cookies" and we all know cookies are the most dangerous threat on the web. unless of course you know how to delete cookies.

Cons

HEY TOMWA! i'm writing more reviews. you're letting me down sissyboy. you getting carpel tunnel or something? you really bite at this revenge of the nerds thing. maybe you should hire some thugs to take us out.........LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL you sure don't have much game sissyboy, nor do any of the other trolls involved in this

"Very good!"

May 22, 2007  |  By ms8137c

 |  Version: A-squared Free 1.6.5

Pros

Before I use SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition, Spyware Terminator and both found nothing. A-squared Free found at the first deep scan a lot of infections. Easy to update, use, configurate. Try it and you'll see the result!

April 06, 2007  |  By im.spartacas

 |  Version: A-squared Free 1.6.5

Pros

i have been using this along side ad-aware and SAS. over the past 3 weeks it has detected more than ad-aware witch i think is nowhere near as good as it used to be and have uninstalled it.

Cons

does miss some spyware but its first priority is trojans as someone else pointed out and it is free
