"An Excellent Anti-Spyware program."

February 20, 2011  |  By TonyBeGoode

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 4.48.1000

Pros

Easy to use and easy on system resources. Will often catch stuff the other programs miss - and, it plays well with others .

Cons

None so far - never had any problems with it.

Summary

One of several good ant-spyware programs out there - since they usually take different approaches , I keep several around and this one has proven itself effective. It's a keeper !

"An unsatisfactory experience, I learned nothing from it"

February 17, 2011  |  By howardferns

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 4.48.1000

Pros

I installed it and let it get on with a scan, no problem with that

Cons

Scan result said I had 1 adware/tracking cookie & 7 rogue components, but button "Explain detected items" gave vague and ambiguous answers which left me totally unsure whether I should remove them or leave them.

Summary

For adware it said "This application may not be safe to have on your system" but goes on to say the cookie may be safe if it belongs to a login, & "You may wish to trust cookies detected by SAS if they bnelong to sites you trust." So how could I tell if I could trust it or not, if it didn't tell me?
As for the 7 rogue components, the only details for each of these were exactly the same: "Unclassified item, we are currently researching this item to provide more updated information."
So, I decided to let well alone, if it ain't broke don't fix it, but when I tried to quit the program a popup said "There are still dangerous items on your system." I ignored this and hit Finish, but it went ahead and quarantined the items even though I hadn't expressly asked it to.
As soon as I've submitted this review, I am going to uninstall SAS.

"a good program indeed"

February 17, 2011  |  By sam23sam

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 4.48.1000

Pros

Free. I've had it find malware. I don't think I've had it find false positives. Free version is worth having as a back-up scanner. I use it at least once a week. Inexpensive upgrade(I haven't tried it).

'

Cons

Slow update. In start-up and I remove it(that's what winpatrol is for). Slower scan than some. Fairly large program.

Summary

Good software. Team it up with malwarebytes, One day I will upgrade.

"I am impressed and encouraged."

February 14, 2011  |  By Meticularius

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 4.48.1000

Pros

The first time through, this program caught 800+ items on my home computer. I felt horrified. I use CA and Windows Defender all the time, and will continue to use them; but, my power play now is SuperAntiSpyware. It was easy to download and run.

Cons

I don't know of any down side to this program.

"It's a life saver."

February 13, 2011  |  By kendawson

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 4.48.1000

Pros

It's death to spyware and viruses.

Cons

There are no cons with having a good program like this around.

Summary

Like people say, it does find the ones that others miss.

"Was the only one to fix "AntiVira-Av" trojan"

February 11, 2011  |  By moapys

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 4.48.1000

Pros

This was the last of the five utilities that I "threw at" this fake-security-program malware (that locks out exe files, subverts the browser, etc); it should have been the first...it, alone, quarantined the bad code.

Cons

It would have been a bit handier to deploy as a single / portable .exe; as it happened, the two steps of installing forced more workarounds with this virus - - but not at all insurmountable.

Summary

Lesson-learned; I now BEGIN with S.A.S., and only in the unlikely event that something gets past it - doubtful - would I bother with the others...even as trustworthy as MalwareBytes. This one is a winner.

"Solid product"

February 10, 2011  |  By fred64ha

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 4.48.1000

Pros

Been using this for more than a year. Its reliable with frequent database updates. It has found and fixed problems for me, that other programs missed or had not yet been updated to detect..

Cons

Free version only runs manually, no ability to schedule scans and no real time protection.

Summary

Good product, finds problems and eliminates them.

"Good,simple and supberbly effective"

February 10, 2011  |  By jrmilne

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 4.48.1000

Pros

None so far - I trust this will always remain so.

Cons

Excellent product - does what it says on the tin! Has proved better than other anti spy ware programmes that cost a lot of money and was unable to "clean" my computer to the same level as cnet.

Summary

You would have to travel far to find a better programme - especially for a non techie like myself..
