From NetGate Technologies:
Anti-Spyware, Anti-Trojan, Anti-Spam Solution that fast and secure removes spyware, viruses, spam and other malware from your computer. Spy Emergency protects you against spyware, viruses, adware, spam, homepage hijackers, remote administration tools, dialers, keyloggers, and many other types of internet threats. Spy Emergency supports resident shields for real-time protection and automatic infections database updates for better protection. It supports Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Opera Browser.
Unfortunately, it keeps finding the same spyware over and over.
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.
Good light quick scanning low on system resorces fast quick set up good protection
You only have 15 day trial once expired cant remove or update
Highly recommended for people unprotected Very good protection at a reasonable price

READ THIS UPDATED REVIEW BEFORE INSTALLING!!
Updated on Jun 27, 2010I PAID FOR THIS PRODUCT AND IT STARTED TO SHUT DOWN MY ANTIVIRUS AND IT PUT MANY FALSE PASITIVES ON MY PC I DONT KNOW IF THIS HAS HAPPNED TO U BUT I DON NOT RECOMMENED THIS PRODUCT ANYMORE!
Doesnt really uninstall so causes conflicts with other A/V etc software when you try to install them.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
I've said it all in pros & cons. Highly recommended for 64bit systems. Just the opposite for 32 bit systems.
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.
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.
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.
Easy to use.Nice looking application.Does the job.
It worked fine on my old XP machine,not my new vista machine, it picked up a lot of false positives. 400-500 items,files needed by my operating system. I uninstalled and wow. My registry was inundated with unmovable items.Had to do a system restore!
Used to work fine on XP.Not very good on Vista.Beware Vista people! Left lots of files,data and registry problems on my new laptop after uninstall. System restore saved my bacon!
