"Batman's Robin"

December 19, 2011  |  By thekidinboston

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.0.1108

Pros

The missing second piece to my Piece of Mind.

SAS Finds so many baddies that other programs miss. No matter which Security Suite I am running, this still catches what the other programs miss.

IMPORTANT NOTE!!!!
If you are planning on upgrading to the Full Version, please note that it will now scan your computer in real time (aka ALL THE TIME, thus using more of your system's resources. Check to make sure you have enough RAM installed on your machine before you plan on going FULL VERSION.

If you have a Not-So-Powerful-Machine and want to buy the full version, I would recommend pairing this with the new WEBROOT Anyware. Webroot uses next to no resources, and won't slow your computer down to a crawl.

Cons

The name sounds like scam-ware

Summary

Highly recommend!
This makes a great One Two Punch when paired up with Webroot or Eset.

Updated on Dec 19, 2011

Correction: Webroot Anywhere is actually called Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete. Avoid previous versions of Webroot

"Awesome, simply awesome."

November 29, 2011  |  By reverdan

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.0.1108

Pros

Fast, clean and complete. I checks everything, including registry problems, and it cleans all of the problems, not just a few unless you buy the paid version. This does it all.

Cons

None that I can find so far.

"For free I can't find or recommend anything better...."

November 27, 2011  |  By Darrick Y

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.0.1108

Pros

The TOP program I've used. Outperforms Malwarebytes hands down. I run them both when I clean my machines at home and at waork. I always run Malwarebytes first then SuperAntiSpyware. Super will find many things that malwarebytes did not or ignored. I run the free version on all my machines as I prefer to review all my scans when they are done anyways.

BTW, the guy that posted "This product made me very UNHAPPY", I do not know where he got the idea that he had to buy the Pro version to clean his machine. That is not true at all.

Cons

Auto updating would be nice, but I don't expect it for a free program.

Summary

GET IT!! You will not be sorry that you did.

"Great cleanup"

November 26, 2011  |  By JessGless

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.0.1108

Pros

I assumed my system would be relatively free of junk as I closely watch what I view and download. I was surprised there were so many items the application found that SHOULD NOT have been on my computer, especially without my consent.

Cons

None that I could see.

Summary

Super!

"Kept crashing"

October 27, 2011  |  By robrote

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.0.1108

Pros

Easy to use. Updates easily and seems to get the bad bugs.

Cons

Could not fully scan my Vista machine. Tried to re-install, shutting off my AVG etc.

Summary

I have used this product many times in the past with great results. I recommend always running in safe mode.

Kept shutting down on my Vista machine I was using. I ended up doing individual scans until I found the scan that was failing.

"This product made me very UNHAPPY"

October 23, 2011

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.0.1108

Pros

I guess I do not have anything good to say about it.
I downloaded the free version, ran the scan, and in order to fix what they had found to be a problem, I had to buy the pro version. I bought it and it buggered up my pc. A waste of my money.

Cons

It uses cpu and slowed my pc to a snails pace.

Summary

I do not like it. I had to uninstall it so I could fix my pc.
In order to uninstall you have to go to a site and get the uninstalled, what a ripoff.

"Worked great on old PC so I got it for my Win7."

October 23, 2011  |  By badco58

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.0.1108

Pros

Very easy to use, great addition to my security software I already have.
It worked great for me many years ago but fortunately I have not had to use it in a long time.

Cons

Haven't had to use it yet on my 2 year old laptop so I don't know of any cons.

Summary

I used this on my XP many years ago and it fixed the problem no other programs could. Decided to install on my Win7 just for precaution. I also use Malwarebytes, Vipre Antivirus and Online Armor firewall, so I feel pretty safe.

"Just perfect"

October 22, 2011  |  By zemun88

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.0.1108

Pros

It is much more better than Malwarebytes because it can scan a cookies, and other threats. Only difference between paid and free version is a real time protection.

Cons

Very gooooooooooooooooooood

What's new in version 5.0.1108
  • More Efficient & Effective Scanning: New Scanning engine provides faster scanning while being able to detect even the most stubborn threats such as rootkits, rogues, and Trojans.
  • All-new User Interface: Provides easy access to all important tools and features while presenting itself in an easy-to-use interface.
  • Enhanced Real-time Protection: All new Real-Time Protection provides powerful first line defense against installation of new threats. With minimal performance impact, the Real-Time Protection provides immediate detection of threats before they can take hold of a system and gives instant notification allowing users to take action before malware does.
  • Smaller & Faster Updates: Compression algorithm improvements provide smaller update files sizes and faster downloading than in previous versions. This makes it faster & easier to stay up-to-date with the latest malware definitions and reduces the load on the computer while the updates are being downloaded and applied.
  • Powerful Scheduling: With the integration of Windows Task Scheduler, SuperAntiSpyware offers maximum scheduling flexibility for both updates and scans. SuperAntiSpyware now has the ability to 'wake' computers from sleep in order to run scheduled updates or scans allowing scans to be performed when the computer is not in use.
  • Rescue Scan: When enabled, Rescue Scan allows SuperAntiSpyware to recoup processing power from CPU hogging malware programs in order to put more power and resources behind the scanning engine.
  • Critical Point Scan: Critical Point Scan in SuperAntiSpyware scans over 20 different areas of the computer to quickly identify threats.
  • All-new Quarantine: Suspicious items detected by real-time protection or by scans are automatically placed in the redesigned Quarantine area. Once in Quarantine the item is 'sandboxed' from infecting files outside of quarantine, from there quarantined items can be deleted, removed or marked as safe.
