Editors' Review

+
This extremely basic application might help guard your browser from hijacks, but it's far from a full-blown antimalware application. The program's bland, unattractive interface is at least easy to use, as you'll only find four icons. Spyware and Adware Removal includes something like a real-time shield, but its performance failed to impress us. Also, the pop-up blocker doesn't work well at all. Don't expect a comprehensive scanning engine like most antispyware applications provide, as this program only ferrets out browser-helper objects. That said, it does its work quickly and did detect the majority of malicious BHOs we installed for testing purposes. However, since you can find many more powerful antispware programs that also perform this same function, we doubt most people will find this bare-bones offering necessary. At least it's free.

"Useless - Much Better Programs available here"

December 12, 2005  |  By LoW_Reviewer

 |  Version: Spyware and Adware Removal 2

Pros

Program does have limited functionality. Programmers now have a descent base to program from although it needs work still.

Cons

Had stability issues while running on test machines, and crashed one of my systems.

System resources are used to max even though they are specified as requiring far less. Name of Software is used by several different programmers and can easily be confused.

"Protects as described - so far"

July 13, 2005  |  By moonlighter6

 |  Version: Spyware and Adware Removal 1.0f

Pros

Stopped adware, pop-ups, and hacker files already indentified by another program. My WIN ME operates faster with no irritating pop-ups although I can't remmove the offending program - SO NEW no virus program can identify it - YIKES.

Cons

MUST disable the blocking for pop-ups for sites that I TRUST.

"SPYWARE ADWARE POP UP ADS"

April 11, 2005  |  By j_rk

 |  Version: Spyware and Adware Removal 1.0a

Pros

These pop-up ads are generated by software that was either intentionally or un-intentionally installed on your computer. They can generate pop-up ads as soon as your web-browser is opened, or as soon as you connect to the internet.

This program will remove all pop up ads even caused by the NEWEST spyware you might catch.

"False comments indeed"

April 11, 2005  |  By Nemesis6

 |  Version: Spyware and Adware Removal 1.0a

Pros

* None I know of.

Cons

It doens't remove spyware or adware. I believe it has this name to lure more people to download it. Furthermore, Doober is right: Their reviews are indeed spoofed. At least a lot of them are.
