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.

"An important addition to my anti-spyware toolkit!"

March 07, 2010  |  By traxman57

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2.6.6.196

Pros

It is a set and forget program. It is especially effective in conjunction with CLAMAV activated during Full Scan. Signature updates are frequent.

Cons

I stopped using Hips Activation due to the amount of disruptive activity it created. There are a lot of threats this program misses, but it also catches some that others miss.

Summary

This is one of the first security tools I install on a new or refurbed system! (Along with a good firewall and anti-virus program). This one runs all the time. An excellent free security solution.

"Great Product!"

March 03, 2010  |  By raelynismine

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2.6.6.196

Pros

Blocks ads while still allowing you to view a site, tells you of harmful sites and why they are bad, small program only 5k kb to run, easy as pie to use, love the toolbar, FREE!

Cons

Absolutely none, I love it.

Summary

This program is great! WAY better than AVG, which was huge and took up to much of my running memory and didn't do squat. I love it that it tells you exactly which part of the website is harmful, how it is harmful, and then allows you to decide what to do. I'm so satisfied, I signed up just to write this review.

After reading the reviews, I have to say it's the real time protection that freezes your computer. I tried it twice with it on, and it did freeze my computer as well. I just turned it off, and it still outperforms any other free protection I've tried. That's stupid, I know...it should just work. But really, even without that it's great.
