    "Nice program to have for a peace of mind."

    May 24, 2008  |   By Classic 1957

    Version: Spyware Terminator 2.2.1.433

    Pros

    Although at first it's a little irritating, once the filters are set this little progam runs in the background and stops adware cold. It doesn't stop there, however it monitors all process when they start up and warns you when something suspecious (or is not on your "allow list") is trying to start. It even has Clam Anti Virus if you wish to use it. (Any one who has used Linux will probably recognize Clam AV) All in all a great little program*****

    Cons

    Comes with "Crawler Tool Bar" as part of the Web Security and even though I dont need a tool bar, it doesn't get in the way, depending on how you set it up.

    "Brilliant, has absolutely everything."

    May 24, 2008  |   By The Download Master

    Version: Spyware Terminator 2.2.1.433

    Pros

    It can immunixe against spyware, it can protect you from spyware and has the quickest scan i have ever seen! 5 minutes for a fast scan and 10 for a full scan. Whats more is that it comes with the option of antivirus, although it isn't a substitute for avast!, and it can protect you when you are online

    Cons

    None!

    "Excellently easy!"

    May 23, 2008  |   By sjoman88

    Version: Spyware Terminator 2.2.1.433

    Pros

    Full Virus & Spyware Scan is easiest and fastest way to check up your computer daily and recommended for virus/spyware scan beginners.

    Cons

    I don't like that Full Spyware Scan does not include Virus Scan. If you want to check your computer for viruses, you have to select and DL the "Full Virus & Spyware Scan" type.

    "Good security but slows down pc..."

    May 22, 2008  |   By acz81

    Version: Spyware Terminator 2.2.1.433

    Pros

    Spyware Terminator is one of only two free real-time antispyware applications...the other being Windows Defender. Spyware Terminator probably offers more than any other free antispyware program. Has the fastest full scan time I've ever seen for any spyware scanner. Has a lot of advanced options to play with.

    Cons

    They say it's compatible with Vista but it doesn't integrate with Vista's security center. Apparently the interface was not a high priority for the makers of Spyware Terminator...no effort put into it. Definitely a resource hog. Perhaps offers a little too much for just average pc users...

    "It almost terminated my laptop."

    May 20, 2008  |   By Knight19777

    Version: Spyware Terminator 2.2.1.433

    Pros

    Nothing.

    Cons

    The software froze my computer...I thought "blue screen of death" was about to happen. Luckily, I was able to uninstall it.

    However, this took 45 minutes as my computer was so slow...

    Stay away from this if you run Vista as an OS....

    "short on cash but need big protection... this is it"

    May 19, 2008  |   By mixaplex

    Version: Spyware Terminator 2.2.1.433

    Pros

    terminator started out as (almost) a scam ware. who knows what caused the change, maybe the creeps that started it got religion or something. this works, realtime blocking, good scans, good definition base and frequent updates. go for the whole package install the crawler toolbar, add the clam av, and activate all protections. then install spyware blaster and avg free 8. and use firefox instead of ie. man i'm not jerking you around... this is better than anything you could pay for. i run a small pc repair service and set all my clients up like this and it's proven to be almost bullet proof. some of my clients are internet morons... go anywhere, click anything. this even works for them, try it.

    Cons

    biggest problem, it was design for the vista age. needs a heck of a lot of juice to run. if your reading about this stuff your most likely trying to make your computing experience better. so do what you can to max your systems ram and if necessary shut down the pretty os effects. yeah this uses resources, but they all do today. spend your $ on upgrades not pricey security. other than power needs, this is for you.
