    "Avoid this program."

    February 02, 2014   |   By gsandruck3

    Version: Double Anti-Spy Professional 1.4.4.4

    Pros

    None. See below.

    Cons

    Double Anti-Spy, besides being below average in performance as illustrated in the PCMag review, is 1) no longer available from the publisher, Avanquest, 2) no longer supported by the publisher, Avanquest, 3) one of its two malware definition sets, "Malware Threat Definitions A", is no longer updatable, automatically or manually, 4) its program has not been revised or updated from Version 1.4.4.4 since the product was introduced 9/3/2009, and 5) even if you download the 14 day trial program from CNet, there is no way to buy it from Avanquest via the link provided in the program. Avoid it like the plague.

    "Double Anti Spy Better than Norton"

    April 03, 2010   |   By TammyPre

    Version: Double Anti-Spy Professional 1.4.4.4

    Pros

    I like that its easy to install, and easy to uninstall. It seems to work, its caught a bunch of viruses. We used to own Norton anti virus, but changed to Double Antispy based on a recommendation from our tech wizard pal.

    Cons

    Nothing so far, but I'll let you know if it doesn't catch something bad.

    Summary

    I recommend double anti spy mostly because it seems to work well and the price is right.

    "One of the best antispyware programs yet"

    January 13, 2010   |   By ricochet23

    Version: Double Anti-Spy Professional 1.4.4.4

    Pros

    It has two of the best antispyware engines you can find anywhere. I tried Sunbelt Vipre first and liked it very much. Sunbelt Vipre is combined with another great program to eliiminate the rest of the malware you do not need on your computer.

    Cons

    It took a long time to download, compared with some others, and longer to obtain updates for both engines. However, once that was accomplished it performed flawlessly.

    Summary

    This program lives up to Avanquest's own descriptive comments about it. The two engines are tops amongst the antispyware programs. Engine A contains Sunbelt?s Vipre and Engine B includes Agnitum?s Outpost Antispyware, combined with VirusBuster SDK. Both engines are from respected companies, and it was Avanquest that was able to ingeniously combine both engines so they would be compatible with each other. I tried Sunbelt Vipre first and it is tops. With the Double Anti-Spy Professional, you get both engines for the price of one. I also found a coupon for a further 25% discount, in case anyone is interested:

    I use this program, along with my other favorites: SuperAntispyware, Threatfire, and Iobit Security 360 without any conflicts. Each has a different definition base and method of operation, resulting in a more complete detection and removal of cookies and malware/spyware. And, they are all free. I registered Threatfire as my official antivirus software in Windows Security Center.

    Updated on Jan 18, 2010

    I have since devalued continued to evaluate this and upgraded to the purchased version. It eventually began behaving eratically when used with certain other programs I downloaded, until I lost my ability to search for anything. My cursor froze on the screen and became permanently immovable. I don't know if the brand and model computer I have made the difference. Now I only use Vipre Antivirus + Antispyware, along with A-Squared Free, Spyware Blaster and SuperAntiSpyware. I had to uninstall ThreatFire, finally, due to a conflict with the paid version. Vipre offers a firewall, also, that does not conflict in any way. I opted for the Windows Firewall. On that basis, I can see that this might conflict with some computer programs and hog otherwise valuable file space and memory.. It just seemed too good to be true (especially since I have a HP Pavillion comuter}..

    "Avoid this product and watch out for fake reviews"

    November 28, 2009   |   By itsme2003

    Version: Double Anti-Spy Professional 1.4.4.4

    Pros

    Nothing. Don't waste your time downloading a product that fakes the reviews of its own products.

    Cons

    First off, I was really put off by all the fake 5-star reviews. Any company that favorably reviews its own product is usually a terrible company to do business with. Anyway I downloaded this program and it does the same as the free programs.

    Summary

    Please don't support companies that provide fake reviews of their own product. It makes the review process useless. But companies like this would like that so you can't see how worthless their product is.

    "Don't be fooled by the good reviews ..."

    November 19, 2009   |   By darkstaff

    Version: Double Anti-Spy Professional 1.4.4.4

    Pros

    Nothing ... really nothing.

    Cons

    Horrible product, doesn't even work. Crashes computer and I can't uninstall. I think the other positive reviews here are written by Avanquest marketing personal to be honest

    Summary

    Waste of hours of my time trying to remove a piece of software that crashes my machine. Can't believe the other positive reviews here.

    "Double Anti-Spy Professional"

    October 10, 2009   |   By heidi0902

    Version: Double Anti-Spy Professional 1.4.4.4

    Pros

    Ease of use, customer support, updates

    Cons

    I didn't notice any cons.

    Summary

    This is a great program! It was easy to install and I feel better about making online transactions with it running. I love the summary report because you actually get to see what it did. I didn't have to use the customer support, but it comes with a free year of support via the phone or email for free! It also updates itself for free for a year. Definitely worth the cost!

    "Excellent software"

    October 09, 2009   |   By clearllc

    Version: Double Anti-Spy Professional 1.4.4.4

    Pros

    Easy to use and powerful (once set-up)

    Cons

    Set up instructions were a little confusing

    Summary

    I have been using Double Anit-Spy for a few days and really it (one I figured out that "serial number" was "registration key" included on the cd. I like that complete printed reference manual comes with the software and it is really use to use and look up things I have questions about.

    The program loaded really quickly and during it's first complete scan (which took a considerable amount of time, but you are warned of that upfront) it found 4 potential risks which the program identified by severity and quarantined. The recommended more frequent quick scan was considerably faster than a full scan, but it's really nice to have the ability to conduct a complete scan of the system and still have shorter scans more frequently.

    The other thing that I found to be convenient with this software was that 3, not 1, licenses were included. It is rare that homes only have 1 computer anymore and not having to buy separate software packages for each computer was an added bonus.

    "Works GREAT w/out hogging resources."

    October 07, 2009   |   By KayMMIV

    Version: Double Anti-Spy Professional 1.4.4.4

    Pros

    It works well, catches files other anti-spyware doesn't, catches them as they try to download and works without slowing downt he computer noticably.

    Cons

    I haven't found anything I dislike yet and I've had it for a month or so.

    Summary

    This has worked so well for us! It has caught some malignant files as they were trying to download to the computer that were threats and quarantined them and when it's running a scan we hardly notice, which is such a great plus because our last software for this was a huge resource hog. It made it difficult to use the computer for the hours it took to scan it. Double Anti-Spy works much, much faster and doesn't interfere with our usage of the computer in any noticeable way. That's a HUGE plus for us! We would definitely recommend this product to everyone!
