Spyware Terminator

CNET 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.

    "Real Termintor in the block!"

    April 7, 2008  |   By Joseph ATO-BINEY

    Version: Spyware Terminator 2.1

    Pros

    By virtue of where I live I find it difficult to buy fully licensed or professional versions of the V-SMART. So, I have trying on several occasions cocktails just to arrive at securely protecting my PC from attacks. One problem I have been struggling to overcome is the Spyware. All freebies I have tried such as Spyware Doctor, Spyware Blaster, Spybot could not insulate my PC from a number of spywares until I install SPYWARE TERMINATROR with Comodo Firewall Pro and Avast. The PC is very strong now. I have finally achieve what I was looking for.

    Cons

    My only worry is that the Clam AntiVirus can't run, though I installed and activated it. I have seen other complaining. So the guys should finish the good job by solving that problem in the next version, that is Spyware Terminator 2.2 which they promise to release soon. Also the Web Security Guard won't install despite several efforts completely downloading it thrice and installing consequently. By the way, K-U-D-O-S, guys

    "A very good application faultless operation"

    April 6, 2008  |   By taylorb483

    Version: Spyware Terminator 2.1

    Pros

    Works straight away without having to worry too much about setting up. Though all major settings are configurable best to leave as defaults unless you have a clear idea and knowledge of what they are for.

    Cons

    Can get a bit tedious loading new or upgrading other software on your PC. Or did I miss something?

    "This one installs Spyware."

    April 5, 2008  |   By ca-morse

    Version: Spyware Terminator 2.1

    Pros

    I it seem to run great and then about a week after install Windows Defender updated its own definitions and caught it. I started to wonder if this program really worked but thought whats it going to hurt.

    Cons

    Just to double check it was this program I installed it on another computer. Windows defender on Vista caught spyware on install of this app on a second computer also. Don't know if it was a false positive or what but it said Adware: Win32/Generic.A

    Alert level High.

    "This is the best of all the ones I've tried"

    April 3, 2008  |   By spec111

    Version: Spyware Terminator 2.1

    Pros

    Quick, easy to navigate, updates itself regularly (you can set it or do so manually), scanning is very quick. It is very thorough and detects bad cookies etc. which other programmes have not found. Can also detect bad "favourites". It works silently in the background but will prompt, ie if you've just installed a programme it doesn't know. It works for me and I'm using it in conjunction with other free security downloads, no conflicts experienced.

    Cons

    It comes with a Crawler toolbar for extra internet surfing protection, which you either like or u don't. Just learn to play with the settings until it works for u. It warns you which websites contain adware, spyware etc. but I've switched this off and am taking my chances, else it limits your web experience 'cause most sites lately either have ads, pop-ups blasts etc.
