Editors' Review

+

This spyware scanner and removal tool does the job, but enabling some functions may cause slight slowdowns and it's not ready for Vista.

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.

"Best FREE anti-spyware!!!"

February 23, 2008  |  By dk-spec

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2

Pros

Free real time protection is gr8 , the immunisation feature is good. Definately the best free anti-spyware software

Cons

Slowish scanning, sometimes heavy on resources (not too much problem to modern pc owners) and the Clam Av is rubbish and uses a lot of resources, if u need an anti-virus software use Pc Tools antivirus/AVG/Antivir or avast!

"FANTASTIC!!"

February 20, 2008  |  By solo247

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2

Pros

I have been using this ware for more than a year now, and has recommended and loaded it onto my friends and associates computers. For a free-ware, very few exceeds this one Spyware detector. Its done such a great job some folks had to disable it in order to use their system while on-line - has an awesome firewall-like feature!!

Cons

Could be better at serious threats such as worm, etc.

"Glad I got rid of it"

February 18, 2008  |  By howardferns

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2

Pros

Easy to understand and set options. Can set schedule time. Automatic updates.

Cons

Spyware Terminator hardly ever found anything! Maybe just the occasional tracking cookie once every five weeks or so. The real time protection slowed my pc down something chronic, and it made a big noise like it was booting up ll the time. As a result, I decided to uninstall it, and I found it had rooted itself into my system, I couldn't delete it. I finally removed it with the help of Unlocker (recommended!) and had to search for and delete every one of its files. Now my pc boots up faster, it runs a fast as it should and it's quiet again.
