"Malware!!!"

November 13, 2010  |  By showme22

 |  Version: Netcom3 Free Spyware Remover 1.0

Pros

None!!!!!!

Cons

Norton, iOrbit360, and SuperAntiSpyware all flagged this as malware.

Summary

As soon as I started the installation process, Norton's real time protection popped up indicating it had quarantined 4 trojans associated with Netcom3. An antivirus scan prior to the installation failed to detect this threat. Subsequent scans with iOrbit 360 and SuperAntiSpyware flagged additional Netcom3 problems that were successfully removed.

"wow wow wow,,reality check!"

June 12, 2010  |  By stu54

 |  Version: Netcom3 Free Spyware Remover 1.0

Pros

none and i mean none.

Cons

Its not free, very suspicious, crashed my pc, annoying nag screen,

Summary

This is frankly a piece of adware written junk and pay no attention to the previous reviews as they are just spam to make it look good.
It installed fine until i was promted to update and then it crashed.
When i restarted it prompted me to do a scan so i did.
It showed over a hundred registry problems which is nothing to worry about but it also showed several forms of spyware that look bogus and have no description.
It also showed up tons of other problems which are garbage aswell as my system is well protected and maintained.
When i ran a scan using Malwarebytes it showed up 7 problems all relating to this program and i had many odd looking registry additions.
When you select to repair the problems you are prompted to register and then you are asked to buy it and if you dont it wont fix the problems so how can this be a free program?
By simply using 10bit 360 and checking the enable passive defence option and also use argente registry cleaner which is also free you have achieved all this programs features for nothing.
I would urge Cnet to re check this programs integrity as it simply looks like a scam..

"Beware! Full of spyware and trojans!"

November 05, 2009  |  By redbudhill

 |  Version: Netcom3 Free Spyware Remover 1.0

Pros

Absolutely none!

Cons

Full of trojans and spyware.

Summary

Full of trojans and spyware, install at your own risk. I agree with the poster who said the same person or persons are writing all the great reviews. If you read several pages they all sound very similar. This program is complete garbage.

"Poor Service, Doesn't Clean Viruses"

May 29, 2009  |  By crazymomma64

 |  Version: Netcom3 Free Spyware Remover 1.0

Pros

No a single thing is good about my experience with this product.

Cons

Could not get any response from Customer Service, sent numerous emails, never got one response. Ran the Anti-Virus, would say none, but run another Anti-Virus program and it would show lots!!!! Crappy Customer Service, would never recommend them.!

"Actually causes more problems than it cures"

May 17, 2009  |  By Zenbob96

 |  Version: Netcom3 Free Spyware Remover 1.0

Pros

None that can be imagined. It is cretinous blarbware!

Cons

False reports, false positives, fails to remove real threats most of the time, buggy and bug infested. Had to remove from system, and other security tools flag it as a threat!

Summary

Clearly many of the positive ratings here are from the same source, and are a shill for the company. Simply avoid this mess. There are other better tools that will not cause you grief with your computer.

"Absolutely great software"

April 20, 2009  |  By nowoes

 |  Version: Netcom3 Free Spyware Remover 1.0

Pros

Netcom 3 is wonderful, very easy to use, and it discovered over 55 registry errors, 2 viruses, and 13 shortcut problems on the initial scan! It cleaned up everything fast and easy!

Cons

I have no cons, just praise.

Summary

I am on my computer 8 hours a day doing internet marketing; I purchased a new computer 2 months ago and stupidly did not install any internet security protection. My PC recently started to crash, running slow, and popups were a regular occurebce, driving me crazy. After doing research on the best protection security, I downloaded Netcom3 and was amazed at the number of errors and registry problems. I performed a clean-up and the result wsas astounding. My PC now runs as fast as it did when I purchased it - and NO more popups. This software flat out WORKS and I highly recommend it!
