Editors' review

Although this application outs spyware on your system, we aren't pleased with its follow-up. Spyware This has an intelligible interface for scanning and detecting hidden spyware and adware on your computer. In our tests, the scanning process takes a few minutes and returns a few spyware entries. Options are to remove the uncovered entries, back them up, or place them on an ignore list to exclude them from subsequent scans. However, the program failed to carry out our requests to remove some and exclude others, although it hastily displayed a window proclaiming success. The trial claims to remove spyware cookies, yet subsequent scans reveal the same spyware entries. Spyware This also lacks some of the features we've come to expect in a reliable pestware remover, such as real-time protection, scheduled scans, and automatic updates to its devices. For reliable spyware detection and removal, we recommend seeking a more assertive application.
