"Spyware Warrior May Need to Recheck That Webgrrrl"

February 08, 2006  |  By _Ryan_

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 1.2.00.544

Pros

No Rouge anti spyware program would give customer support (that works).

Allows you to send a suspicious file for analysis (with feedback).

Creates a backup before each removal.

Ive tryed it on multiple computers with not one single problem.

Cons

The realtime protection could be better.

February 05, 2015  |  By caseyleen

"Malware program."

September 10, 2014  |  By anhedonic67

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.82

Pros

None, unless you love headaches.

Cons

Malware, pure and simple. This program interrupts any running program and throws the computer back to the desktop to try to get you to purchase the full version. When I tried to uninstall, I received a message saying the uninstall file did not work. After reloading three times and getting the same message, I called their help line. They tried to scam me by saying it was due to administration event errors and wanted to charge me $199 to fix it. Absolutely horrid program.

Summary

This program is only good for infecting your computer.

"Doesn't work quite as I want"

August 05, 2014  |  By howardferns

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.82

Pros

Fast Scan takes 1 to 2 minutes.
Installed on 3 computers, it detected a trojan on the first one, that no other tool had found. I was suspicious of this and fully expected it to find the same one on the other two, but as it was only on one computer I have to assume it was genuine.

Cons

All I want is something I can scan with now and again, but every time I run Spyware Terminator it adds its Updater to my startup. I don't want it running all the time, and there doesn't seem to be an option to prevent this. I'd rather be able to click for a simple update before scanning, like you do with MalwareBytes.

"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.

"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 !
