    "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.
