MNS Spyware Remover & History Eraser

CNET Editors' review

Combining a history eraser, a file-encryption utility, and a spyware killer, this program offers some useful features for securing your computer. We found it easy to navigate the main interface. File encryption works well and is easy to use, and you can configure the program to manually delete the source file afterwards. The history killer cleans up after a variety of software, from Windows and Internet Explorer to Opera, Netscape, and Firefox. You'll find a tool for creating your own plug-in cleaner, although you'll need to be somewhat computer-savvy to use it. Nevertheless, the application already can clean up after numerous third-party apps, including popular IM and file-sharing clients.

Overall, the program's spyware-removal prowess fared better than it has in the past. Scans were mostly fast, and the app did a capable job of removing the majority of the spyware and malicious browser-helper objects we installed for testing purposes. While this program shouldn't be your only line of defense against adware, it makes an all-around attractive safety and privacy suite.

    "MALWARE, SPYWARE, BAD BAD BAD"

    December 5, 2010  |   By heatherispink

    Version: MNS Spyware Remover & History Eraser 4.2

    Pros

    nothing good to talk about

    Cons

    this program is spyware

    Summary

    Spyware Search & Destroy detected this as spyware, and removed the whole entire program, then prompted me to restart my comp and do a deep down search. I've never had to do that before, and it took 2-3 hours! Save yourself some time and possibly your computer from a horrible ending and just skip over this program. *** editors, giving this 4 stars!?

    Version: MNS Spyware Remover & History Eraser 4.2

    Pros

    there are no pros

    Cons

    i downloaded it and updated it which took ages to get the 1003 new things it claims it can detect i then did a deep scan with it which took about 12 minutes it listed 7 dialers i had and lots of cookies i then clicked its repair button which is supposed to repair these problems in your pc but i got an error message displayed to me saying mns_sk has caused an error in (unknown) mns_sk will now close, my pc froze up at this point requiring me to restart it in safe mode etc, i tried another scan and it found the same things and went wrong again after id pressed the repair button! you only get 2 free scans in this trial anyway so what a load of crap whoever released this junk should apologise to download.com and its users,noone bother to get this as its not working
