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.

"its good and its free"

February 08, 2009  |  By Ammar Sherwani

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2.3.0.487

Pros

its real time protection is good and keeps your computer clean with the help of scheduler. other utilities like web guard is also impressive.

Cons

its latest version 2.3 is sometimes annoying when installing a new software because it blocks it, so one needs to change its mode in order to install the software completely.

Summary

its an excellent software and has improved a lot, removes all kinds of bugs. And ITS FREE.

"Even free I don't think it is worth it"

December 24, 2008  |  By shawnamc

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2.3.0.487

Pros

Easy to use, warns you of anything that tries to connect to the internet.

Cons

Never removed anything from my computer. Pops up warnings that I previously had said to accept. Other spyware product was ran after I ran this one and picked up 40 things where as I said this one said there were none found.

Summary

Better off having something else entirely on my computer.

"Not sure of the benefits"

December 07, 2008  |  By xymptlx

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2.3.0.487

Pros

Installed well, nice interface, seems to work - a confirmation dialog would pop up when installing new programs to say that my registry is being modified.

Cons

On discovery of spyware (cookies & many unrecognised but popular programs in my case) the options don't seem apparent. I would click report for lack of a more suitable option, and it would just take me to their home page or suchlike.

Summary

I'm not sure I need this, I can't really see a benefit.
