"Used to be great."

November 13, 2011  |  By richardcash87

 |  Version: Spyware Begone 9.15

Pros

Previous versions from 2008-2010 were great. Could always count on finding viruses when nothing else worked.

Cons

New versions are not usable. Comes up as spyware in the Registry on my Avira . Too bad it was a great program while it lasted.
