"I downloaded and was surprised"

May 24, 2005  |  By Compsupplier

 |  Version: Guard Bar 1.1

Pros

The program offers a small toolbar with various features. It offers a pop-up blocker and Also Spyware Prevention rather than removal which we found very helpful.It worked well with several other Spyware/Adware/Malware Removers and did not interfere with there operation.

Cons

Did not like the weather button, does not need to be there and after seeing many machines with Weather based Spyware I was concerned

"Get real"

December 14, 2004

 |  Version: Guard Bar 1.1

Summary

works great for me. I think that Nemesis6 is a competitor and has too much time on his hands. Spybouncer works great and is not spyware. I have a copy and my homies have one too. for the real review listen to the radio spot on their front page

"Weak protection from spyware and pop-ups!"

November 18, 2004  |  By Nemesis6

 |  Version: Guard Bar 1.1

Summary

In one specific test, performed by the famous spyware expert Eric L. Howes, this program proved VERY weak. In fact, it did not prevent any spyware whatsoever from entering the computer in question.

On a worse note, the people behind this program are the same people made SpyBouncer. SpyBouncer is a rogue anti-spyware program that's aggressively advertised, uses false-positive scan results to scare users into buying it.
Also, the company behind both these products are responsible for many browser hijackings that mislead users to download SpyBouncer.

Don't download this.

"Good Preventative"

September 23, 2004

 |  Version: Guard Bar 1.1

Summary

Works to PREVENT add-ware from ever loading on your computer. The pop-up blocker works great on Internet Explorer, but does nothing on Netscape! If Guard Dog's 'bar' is used, it has a convient button to enable or disable 'friendly sites'.

"Variable protection"

September 14, 2004

 |  Version: Guard Bar 1.1

Summary

It only blocks some pop-ups and misc spyware. You still need to run additional spyware programs to remove them. The weather update is only valid for users in USA. I used this program for 30 days and hate it!
