    "The BEST. Really disinfected my laptop."

    April 16, 2007  |   By gayatrilsvgs

    Pros

    My laptop was infacted with some spyware

    very badly and was getting so many poppops/

    banners. So i used, 1.AdAware SE free edition, 2. Norton Internet security 7,

    3. Free online tool 'Housecall' from Trend

    Micro, 4. Spyboat S&D , 5.a-squard free but

    non of them could remove the spyware hiding

    somewhere in the registry.(They all very good software and i use many of them regularly). So while trying to find some

    other software, i luckily found this one.It detected about 5-6 infections in the

    registry and after deleting them right away,i don't have any poppops/banners.

    Very Good software. KP

    Cons

    The only thing made me little confused is,

    after detecting spyware(root) in the registry, it warned me that if i delete those root(?) , my systeam may not work properly if any necessary program was using

    to run the systeam. But,i had no choice other then to delete since other softwares

    couldn't remove the spyware.After deleting

    it, i don't have any problem running my

    laptop.

    It would be 100% perfect if the software

    can explain better that if it's safe or

    unsafe to delete the detected entries.
