Editors' review

This adware killer fails to actively compete with similar programs because of its poky and unreliable performance. In our testing, even running a quick scan took almost 15 minutes and produced disappointing results, only identifying about half the adware we installed for testing purposes. The Active Monitor feature likewise was powerless against certain programs.

We assume these performance issues are due to the fact the trial version doesn't let you update its database of known malware. The interface is pretty standard for this kind of software, though it's somewhat more attractive than many competitors. All things considered, we'd point most users to a spyware app that's faster and more accurate.
