    "A huge disappointment from the earlier version"

    October 7, 2014  |  

    Version: Spybot - Search & Destroy 2.4.40

    Pros

    Pretty interface.

    Cons

    No TeaTimer any longer. Why would you take that away? Shredder used to be free, now it costs to get it along with other tools you probably won't use.

    Summary

    I want the old version back!

    "Absolutely pathetic piece of junk!"

    September 6, 2014  |   By pickycustomer

    Version: Spybot - Search & Destroy 2.4.40

    Pros

    Pros? What pros?

    Cons

    Cons? Too many!

    Summary

    SpyBot S&D has...
    Terrible detection.
    Can't fix a thing.
    Immunize fails horribly.
    The ability to waste a users time and efforts not to mention HDD space.

    At one time SpyBot was one of the best. Anymore it's a total waste. When my last laptop was fried I bought a new laptop. The new laptop has never seen nor will it ever see SpyBot S&D. Period. I use avast free and MalwareBytes Premium along with Comodo Firewall and I feel completely safe. I will never, ever install SpyBot again. Neither should you. Period.

    "screwed up my settings irreversibly"

    August 23, 2014  |   By gbferrell

    Version: Spybot - Search & Destroy 2.4.40

    Pros

    Didn't use it enough to find any.

    Cons

    After installing, updating and immunizing using default settings, it arbitrarily deleted my Recent Items list from my Start menu and I had to change my password to log into my Yahoo Mail again, after which I couldn't regain the better version and had to use the basic version of Yahoo Mail- apparently because of some kind of cookie setting that was changed. Likewise, I couldn't log into my Reverbnation.com account because it said cookies weren't allowed in my browser. I tried every setting I could find in IE 11 options, lowering security levels as far as possible in Security and Privacy tabs, but still couldn't log into Reverbnation.com or regain the advanced version of Yahoo Mail. I tried to use S&D's new 'undo fixing' function but that had no effect. I had to do a System Restore before I could regain previous access to the above-mentioned 2 websites. I've been using older versions of S&D for years and never had this type of problem. Wasted about 4 hours.

    Summary

    S&D 2.4 over manages and screwed up my settings irreversibly. Thanks to Microsoft for System Restore.
