    "Good detection - spots things other software misses."

    February 13, 2007  |   By JohnTS63

    Version: SpyCatcher Express 2006 4.0.4.6

    Pros

    Installed readily on XP. No problem with switching between users. Initial scan detected one Trojan and two Spywares, which had been missed by both SpywareDoctor and Ad-Aware. Real-time protection included.

    Cons

    User-interface not as good as the best. Two "false positives", though these were easily taken out of Quarantine.

    "Caused serious problem"

    January 3, 2007  |   By m615

    Version: SpyCatcher Express 2006 4.0.4.6

    Pros

    I didn't get a chance to find out.

    Cons

    The newest version (later than the one at Download.com) locked up my PC. If you try it, SET A SYSTEM RESTORE POINT BEFORE INSTALLING. You may need it.

    "Does it all with a simple interface."

    July 15, 2006  |   By jonbedford

    Version: SpyCatcher Express 2006 4.0.4.6

    Pros

    This program offers auto-quarantine and remove or allow files at my discretion. It has the most intuitive interface I've used to date. All free...plus if I want all the bells and whistles it only costs me $12.....beat that....I dare ya! Kuddo's to the chef....

    "screws up computer"

    June 1, 2006  |   By mrpoizun

    Version: SpyCatcher Express 2006 4.0.4.6

    Pros

    It did claim to quarantine some stuff (although why not remove it?).

    Cons

    When I would start my computer it caused the startup pages to be blank and a dozen or more boxes would pop up and have to be erased, saying various .dll and .exe images were corrupted. No problem uninstalling it, though.

    "it's crap."

    April 14, 2006  |   By duhhhh1

    Version: SpyCatcher Express 2006 4.0.4.6

    Pros

    it WILL remove spyware the others won't; but at what price?

    Cons

    If they would have allowed a negative value for the rating, I would have given it! I am a computer tech, and have used this on several of the computer's I've worked on; while it HAS removed infestations other anti-spyware software failed to remove, it also has caused many video instabilities, and other issues with the installation. REMOVING this software is akin to trying to remove some of the most tenacious spyware, as it won't remove registry tags. AVOID!

    "effective but affects PC performance"

    March 27, 2006  |   By scrybbler

    Version: SpyCatcher Express 2006 4.0.4.6

    Pros

    finds some spyware the others don't

    Cons

    The "Protector" software that stays in memory and monitors spyware activity has a serious sideeffect - every 3-5 minutes your computer stutters and if you're playing music, this is really really annoying. Quit the Protector, and all is well, but no more spyware protection for Quarantined spyware.

    can be dangerous if you remove something that's not spyware.

    "Great product, free download and found items spybot and ad-aware did not"

    March 1, 2006  |   By dkilbo02

    Version: SpyCatcher Express 2006 4.0.4.6

    Pros

    Price (free) but would consider $20 full version. Also like the real time protection feature

    Cons

    Lack of a user forum to discuss things Spycatcher finds. I keep getting a single root kit trying to install each time I go online. I deny it, and everything works fine but I've run other malicious software removal tools and there are no root kits on my system. Would like a forum to discuss things like this with other users.

    "A great product for power users, beginners might misuse its features"

    February 28, 2006  |   By HawaiiMuskrat

    Version: SpyCatcher Express 2006 4.0.4.6

    Pros

    A great product for power users, beginners might misuse its features and cause themselves trouble, but I love the fact that it locates all these "suspicious" files that I then spend hours researching before deciding how to handle them. I haven't had one negative experience, it's all good, but you have to pay attention! Scans are fast.

    Cons

    After a scheduled scan I'd rather that the program not leave a huge window on my desktop. It scares my wife... Other than that no real con.

    "Simply wonderful!!!"

    October 21, 2005  |   By galen2112

    Version: SpyCatcher Express 2006 4.0.4.6

    Pros

    Got rid of all the spyware and adware that Ad-Aware could not. Went deeper than any before it, and it even scanned my external drive. And it's free!!

    Cons

    You get more features if you pay for the upgrade, but that's a minor detail. I'll just enjoy the free version for now.
