"Would not buy based on trial."

September 03, 2010  |  By redbudhill

 |  Version: SafeReturner 1.27.3

Pros

Scans very fast.

Cons

Only scans startup files.

Summary

Unless the full paid version does more than the trial, I would not recommend. It only has one scan setting, unlike others that usually have at least a Quick Scan and a Full Scan. That one scan setting states "Scans all the files loaded at boot time.....". I ran the scan knowing I have spyware on my computer, and all it came up with was one false positive, a program I have had for ages and it is not spyware. Worthless.

"Very interesting and fast"

July 11, 2010  |  By killpain

 |  Version: SafeReturner 1.22

Pros

The program is worth the attention and get acquainted with him. I myself after a few minutes of use I found that this is an interesting anti-malware.

Cons

The fact that they are happening FP.
It does not have the Real Time Protection.

Summary

It takes only 3MB of RAM while scanning. For this very quickly scans this is his big plus. And over the possibility it offers is to check the file before removing the VirusTotal, removal of infection, the transfer of units, adding a file to the FP.
The program is small does not take much space is not known.

And for this service program is very simple.

While it is fairly effective to kick out rogues that most AVs miss, there is expectedly some FPs. So, be careful during the removal process. It is better than other rogue cleaner Norton Power Eraser in terms of FP.
The developer is kind enough to giveaway license for good purpose.

"Does well against Rogue Antivirus Apps"

June 15, 2010  |  By Microjoin

 |  Version: SafeReturner 1.22

Pros

Small, easy to setup, nice gui and fast scans. Safe Returner is able to terminate and kill all types of rogue apps and malware procesess. Detections are quite good at this early stage and will only get better.

Cons

Not much to dislike but if detections were up there with the likes of Malwarebytes then this could be one of the best around.

Summary

If any malware is present where no other security app will run or even install then this is the one to try as Safe Returner has a couple of tricks up it's sleeve in order to get in behind active malware and get a scan going.

"Small, fast tool for final scrub on malware removal."

June 06, 2010  |  By WeissTech1

 |  Version: SafeReturner 1.22

Pros

Small and fast! Less then 4 meg download and scanned 130GB in 7 minutes. Nice tool to add to the disinfecting routine to assure a clean system.

Cons

Bug: When you click on update definations on overview, it says everything is up to date. Then when you click scan, it says there's a new version of the program and asks to update it. The update button on overview should check DB and EXE version.

Summary

I like the expert options on any identified file to quickly bring up explorer on the file, submit it as a false positive, and perform further research via 3rd party tools that we usually use in virus removal. It's an example of crowd sourcing in action.
