    "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!

    "Fast scanner"

    November 15, 2011  |   By GrrMJ92

    Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.0.1108

    Pros

    Very quick at scanning computer.
    Found and removed a trojan program AVG, Avast, Avira, and MalwareMalbyte's couldn't.
    Free version is free!

    Cons

    None that I could find.

    Summary

    Great free program, I'm very happy I downloaded it :)

    "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
