Editors' review

This spyware scanner and removal tool does the job, but enabling some functions may cause slight slowdowns.

Spyware Terminator's crisp, clean interface uses simple buttons and tabs to operate and set options. The latest spyware signatures are automatically downloaded, and the real-time protection keeps baby-sitting to a minimum. Real-time protection monitors key spyware types and Windows objects, though slight system slowdowns depend on your machine. Those features and the simple scheduler will make this app appealing to novices.

Advanced users will appreciate Spyware Terminator's flexibility. Setting the sensitivity of various scans is as easy as moving a slider. Experienced users will want to enable the built-in antivirus tool, which extends the power of real-time analysis by comparing program code against a database of known viruses, Trojans, and worms.

From set-it-and-forget-it users to those delving into virus code, all will find Spyware Terminator flexible, simple, and effective, key measures of a good antispyware tool.

    "Absolute DUD"

    December 29, 2013   |   By dollo007

    Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.82

    Pros

    Was able to install and had a good interface.. thats all

    Cons

    Literally slows down the system as rightly mentioned by the CNET crew. Identified a rogur object , hanged the system and had to restart the system. Finally uninstalled it. Anytime would go with MBAM or SAS.

    Summary

    Not worthy enough..

    "I don't recommend it"

    November 11, 2013   |   By t-link

    Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.82

    Pros

    -light on resources

    Cons

    -lets a lot of malware and spyware on the system
    -free version is extremely limited
    -interface is confusing
    -database sucks

    Summary

    spyware terminator free is not worth downloading . There are far better antimalwares. Spyware terminator used to be really good when it had clam AV integration but now it just isn't very good.(only my opinion)

    "Highly Overrated"

    November 08, 2013   |   By super14man1

    Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.82

    Pros

    It is a good antimalware when it is free version and the pro version has so many features and uses little resources.

    Cons

    Uses Fprot antivirus which isn't considered a great antivirus, but it's other signatures make up for that.

    Summary

    Very great antimalware, a lot better than 16th place for sure maybe should be in the top five and even the top three.
