Editors' Review

Despite good looks and a strong feature set, this antispyware application doesn't deliver where it counts: security. Spy Emergency 2005 has a colorful, well-designed, and logically arranged interface. It includes a full-blown scheduler, real-time protection, and the ability to exclude certain file types or drives from scans. However, in our tests, the scanning engine failed to remove a number of well-known pests, even with the latest definitions installed. It also detected a few harmless programs as high-risk threats. The real-time-protection module also disappointed us. Due to the number of free and effective antispyware programs on the scene, we find it tough to give this one anything more than a lukewarm review.

"Pretty Good"

August 13, 2012  |  By Judge_Threat

 |  Version: Spy Emergency 11.0.195


-Finds lots of spyware and malware during scans
-Very light on system resources
-Works fine on my Windows 8 Release Preview
-Cool and simple to use GUI


-Real-Time detection could be improved
-Support is kind of slow
-Not a very well known program
-Trial is short, 15 days.


This program is pretty good if you don't mind using it form a brand you hear about every day. I run it on my pc and it works great!
