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!
