-Works fine on my Windows 8 Release Preview
-Cool and simple to use GUI

Cons

-Real-Time detection could be improved
-Support is kind of slow

"Can't recommend based on trial."

August 27, 2010  |  By redbudhill

 |  Version: Spy Emergency 8.0.305

Pros

Scans really fast. Finds lots of spyware.

Cons

Unfortunately, it keeps finding the same spyware over and over.

Summary

I downloaded this for trial. As soon as I find the right software I will buy it, but I need to know if it does what it says before I shell out the money. This one scanned really fast, found several trojans, malware, spyware, etc. Then it said it deleted them. I ran the scan again, and lo and behold, it finds the very same trojans, malware and spyware all over again.

I rebooted and tried again, with the same result. I need a spyware remover that,...oh, I don't know......actually "removes" the spyware, rather than just saying it does, then finding it over and over again.

If it did what it says it does, I would be happy to buy it, because it did find several things. But I don't want to risk my money paying for something that may do the same thing after it is purchased. YMMV.

"Not worth the risk"

February 16, 2010  |  By abkay01

 |  Version: Spy Emergency 2006 3.0.190

Pros

None that I could find

Cons

Doesnt really uninstall so causes conflicts with other A/V etc software when you try to install them.

Summary

I class this almost as malware itself. It doesnt fully uninstall and leaves bread crumbs that trip other other a/v solutions when you try and install them. Support is non-existant and there is no documentation on how to remove the remnants it left behind.

"THIS IS A SCAMWARE!"

August 21, 2009  |  By theserialmaniac

 |  Version: Spy Emergency 2009 6.0.705

Pros

None. Netcom3 is good at scamming.

Cons

DO NOT GET THIS SOFTWARE! Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware Classified this software as a virus! After you download this program, you can't go on sites like www.avg.com or www.malwarebytes.org!

Summary

SCAMWARE

"When it works, theres none better."

May 17, 2009  |  By The Sports Fan

 |  Version: Spy Emergency 2009 6.0.305

Pros

When it works, theres none better. I don't know what the folks at Negate are doing but it seems every other version update sucks. This one does. But the last one that weighs in at 38.4 MB is great. Why" because it has an x64 version in it's exe.

Cons

This version won't run on my X64 Vista Ultimate! The last one runs great * it has an x64 in it's installer exe! This is the only X64 anti-spy app that I've ever found. It has great shields that respond in a heartbeat. An occasional false positive.

Summary

Why is it so good? Because it's the only anti-spy app that actually has a 64 version built into the installer exe. The problem is the folks at Negate don't understand the meaning of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"! I'm sure glad I didn't delete the 2009 version thats 38.4 mb in size. This one's 42,4 & what ever they added needs to be removed! It messes up the system in both x86 & x64. Makes the machine refuse to shut down on it's own. Can't connect to their server & the list goes on.

"Reviewing for an X64 system only."

May 14, 2009  |  By Charles K

 |  Version: Spy Emergency 2009 6.0.305

Pros

A real life saver for me on my Vista Ultimate, X^$ system. Quick scans, quick to load, huge signature file. Almost to big so theres an occasional false positive which I can live with. Clean, skinable UI, easy to use & never misses a scheduled scan.

Cons

A real problem child on 32 bit versions of Vista. Everything from software conflicts with my second Anti-Spy app to hanging during a scan. Takes forever to load, hangs while scanning. Just a real mess on 32 bit Vista which is to bad!

Summary

I've said it all in pros & cons. Highly recommended for 64bit systems. Just the opposite for 32 bit systems.

"It works fine for me!"

April 02, 2009  |  By Charles K

 |  Version: Spy Emergency 2009 6.0.195

Pros

2008 gave me fits on Vista back when I had an x86 system. I just got my new PC & needed an AS app so I tried tis one & it runs great. I had no false positives at all. Fast scans on a schedule. Huge signature file. Great looking skins.

Cons

So far, none. maybe its actually better on a 64 bit system then a 32. I'm running vista Ultimate x64 with a quad core chip & 6 GB of ram. That could be why I'm not having issues. but with such a hube data base, false positives are expected.

Summary

It works great for me. Much better then previous versions that did all kinds of strange stuff to my vista 32 bit system. Like slowing shutdown so bad I removed it & it gave me a few false positives. Thats a simple fix. After using Spy Sweeper with ESET Smart Security, I came to know the data on my system. So, if & when I get a false positive & I'm sure i will, I'll just add it o th keep list. Recommended for Vista (64 Bit systems) only because thats what I have now. I just can't say about systems that I no longer use.
