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.

"One of the worst"

September 01, 2008  |  By emperordarius

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2.2.1.433

Pros

FREE HIPS function
FREE basic antivirus available

Cons

Spyware detection mediocre
Virus detection mediocre
HIPS very intrusive
Includes Crawler Toolbar(ADWARE)

Summary

Spyware Terminator fails to impress in any way, completely useless on infected systems, the HIPS functions is interesting but very intrusive, there are much better alternatives available

"good, solid, and free"

June 17, 2008  |  By v8tank

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2.2.1.433

Pros

This is a great totally free anti-spyware program with integrated anti-virus scan. It has tons of features for being free. This is a great companion for avast or AVG.

It starts up quick enough and doesn't use too much system resources. I recommend at least to try it. It is more than adequate for moderate to good protection.

Cons

Not too crazy about it constantly popping up telling me everything it is doing, but you can disable a lot of that in settings. overall an insignificant gripe for a good program.

"Not good enough"

June 15, 2008  |  By Denomination

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2.2.1.433

Cons

When I was running this software on my comp the results would turn up as no threats found yet ads would pop up on my computer every 5-10 min. I then installed Yahoo tool bar and used their Anti-Spy program and found 19 threats. I removed them all and have not had any pop ups since.

"FOUND NOTHING?????"

June 13, 2008  |  By DR .No

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2.2.1.433

Pros

Well it has a nice interface, very easy to understand! Installs fine, it does sort of give a 2nd warning to "allow" files to continue.

Cons

It missed the boat on numerous occasions! I tried a scan after about an hour and found nothing???? I scanned with Ad-Aware 2008 and PC Tools Spyware Doctor and found 30+ infections, all cookies still they out ran spyware terminator! Basically it sucks, waste of time! Hey if it grabs a nasty on your pc ok, but not for me i'm afraid!

"Don't do it/ Crawler toolbar included"

June 08, 2008  |  By jimd196827

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2.2.1.433

Pros

Its free...But...

Cons

This installed the crawler toolbar even when I told it not to. However, I had another program block the install of it completely. (Winpatrol) Then when I uninstalled it, it installed the toolbar after the reboot. Silly me for trusting the uninstall of a hijacking program. Goto go reload windows now...
