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.

"It install's Add-on's into your Internet explorer"

July 20, 2013  |  By VirtualT

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.74

Pros

It works well removing other spyware, but installs its own ad-on's/adware on your computer - so it's not safe to use.

Cons

This program is not safe to use due to the add-on's,adware and shopping toolbars it installs into your internet browser.

Summary

It removed other adware/ spyware well, and then appears to install's it's own ad- on's on your computer, so not safe to use is my opinion.

"This is a real spy ware, not anti-spy"

June 28, 2013  |  By imdreamer

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.74

Pros

This is a fake ware, it's not anti-spy at all, and bringing more spy wares illegally entering into your device, even you can't completely delete it from windows programs' control panel, it always to ask you to setup more fake software from crawler.com, it's a malicious ware head over heels, i don't know why cnet.com permitted the bad guy to falsify us ?!

Cons

This is a fake ware, it's not anti-spy at all

Summary

Fake !

"scare ware unless piece of garbage."

February 06, 2013  |  By wwshots

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.74

Pros

There is no pros

Cons

It installs its self and dubs people into believing they are infected ........ nags to buy the program ..it doesnt do anything unless you buy the program..... malwarebytes and super antispyware and spy bot search and destroy needed to get rid of it........ and that is after you use the uninstall feature.

Summary

The premise of a site like CNET is to be able to get software that wont harm your computer a trustworthy site. If CNET allows this kind of crap on this site without checking it out first then my opinion of CNET has gone down the tubes and I will tell people not to trust any software from this site because it is not trustworthy

"Unstable SOFTWARE"

January 12, 2013  |  By kwikfix

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.74

Pros

none whats so ever

Cons

Froze up my laptop and have to disconnect the power to get it back functioning and ended up corrupting my registry files. Its better the Anti spyware called SPYNOMORE. review it at ..

Best of all i got a refund when i wanted to switch between their products to the one that fully satisfied me

Summary

better pay up a small amount for a software that can deliver results

"Not For Me, Thanks..."

January 06, 2013  |  By tonester59

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.74

Pros

Few, if any, other than it's free.

Cons

Poor detection; must be set up very carefully or it will really screw with your system ( beware the HIPS setting - it works poorly, does not remember responses, and is best left to your firewall anyway.) Real-time protection is a good idea, in theory, but this program slows down your system and tends to be overly intrusive.

Summary

I tried this program a couple of years ago, and it doesn't seem to have been improved at all. In addition to missing adware another of my programs caught, it's nag screens drove me crazy.(Can you say overly aggressive marketing?) The full scan was so quick it made me wonder if it checked anything on my computer at all. A lot of the free programs I use have ads, but they don't bother me much. This one goes over the line, however. (It also makes me suspicious of all the positive reviews I see here.) If you need a good anti-spyware program, you're better off with SuperAntispyware or Spybot S&D IMHO.

"I like it!"

November 30, 2012  |  By lance444

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.74

Pros

Really fast scans and few false positives. Quick updates and easy to use GUI.

Cons

No auto updates for free version. Slows down PC when real time protection is turned on. Some features are off on free version.

Summary

I use it for scanning and removing spyware and malware but I don't use the real protection since it slows down my PC. Overall, this is a good product and I never had problems with it so I'll keep using it.

Updated on Nov 30, 2012

I hope guys at Spyware Terminator can make a portable version so I can use it on my customers PC without installing it.

An updatable version would be great since downloading a new portable version instead of updating its anti-spyware definitions is really a frustrating.
