"best protection possible"

March 10, 2014  |  By ChoiceVoice

 |  Version: SpyShelter Personal Free 8.9

Pros

-this is the best there is. hips is strong and unintrusive, has driver verification, can sandbox programs (like browsers or email), has certificate verification (unsigned will not execute stopping malware), strong antispyware capabilities, kernel level encryption, etc ... too many features to mention.

-extremely light on system. i don't notice any slowdown with my weak netbook (atom processor).
-password protected.

Cons

-could use auto updater (notifies of updates and asks to install instead).
-really green computer users might not use advanced features, but out of the box protection is still excellent for them.

Summary

this makes your system linux like in security. and its as lite as air. i sandboxed my browser (runs in restricted mode, can only right to areas i destinate, this kills exploits etc from sneaking onto system)

"No Thank You"

June 19, 2013  |  By crsecon

 |  Version: SpyShelter Personal Free 8.4

Pros

Looks good, allegedly free.

Cons

Box appears. Free version does not support 64 bit OS, would you care to try paid premium version instead?

Summary

No I would not care to pay for something listed as "free". Pay is reserved for useful programs like Tree Card Games and Iobit Suite.

"Best anti keylogger I ever used"

April 08, 2013  |  By parthekos

 |  Version: SpyShelter Personal Free 6.5

Pros

blocks even elite keylogger
lifetime license(not the cheapest one but still)
best antikeylogger so far imo
windows 8 x64
support is responding in 24 hours
installation less than 10mb and doesn't slow pc

Cons

not really modern GUI

Summary

Technically, I find SpyShelter Premium as the best antikeylogger I ever used(tried zemana, DataGuard, GuardedID,CoDefender - they are very far away behind in efficiency)

designers should put some effort intro creating nice GUI, because it gives windows 98 feeling, I hope they will read this

"Does not support 64 bit platforms!"

May 26, 2012  |  By ckcomodo

 |  Version: SpyShelter Personal Free 6.1

Pros

Who knows, got upsell required screen.

Cons

Asks to pay for Premium version to use in 64 bit Win7.

Summary

For older platforms, maybe. Did not allow me to try unless going back into compatability mode--no thanx.

"Probably worth having"

August 27, 2011  |  By sam23sam

 |  Version: SpyShelter Personal Free 5.42

Pros

free, seems to be light on its feet. has a link to virus total(40 virus and malware engines) that even i can figure out how to use. has a HIPS.

Cons

the HIPS drives me crazy by flagging things all the time. especially when i was also using spyware terminator(st's HIPS never seems to learn). although ss's HIPS learns better, went to protection tab and turned off sys protection-turned HIPS off.

Summary

as i like a HIPS, i use threatfire on level 4 and it seems to learn reasonably well. a while back the word was that pc tools was not going to support tf any more, but i still get auto updates at least every day or two.
i.really don't know squat about keyloggers but the other reviewers reassured me. i also got a free year of zemana anti-logger that i use and it seems to play well with others. hopefully spy shelter will be of help.

"So far, so good."

June 14, 2011  |  By Teacher_71

 |  Version: SpyShelter Personal Free 5.20

Pros

Fast install and runs in the background. Gives a pop-up of something suspicious so you can Accept, Deny, or Terminate the app. Works with Chrome, Firefox, and IE.

Cons

None so far since this is my first day using it.

Summary

I use Firefox as my main browser with KeyScrambler. Since KeyScrambler doesn't work with Chrome, I wanted additional security and this program seems to fit the bill. I use Chrome on my netbook and this extra security is good.
