"Take my review with a grain of salt/sand."

August 17, 2014  |  By DH1

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 6.0.1130

Pros

I have nothing to say *for* it.

Cons

I have nothing to say *against* it.

Summary

Understand, I am not techie. That said?.

From nearly the first day I bought my first computer -- more than a decade ago -- I have used various anti-virus and malware products. (Knock on wood, I have never had a problem with any of them.)

I continue to use and like: a) AVG, b) Malwarebytes and c) Spybot. As a fourth choice, and for whatever reason, I occasionally run SuperAntiSpyware. Given that I have never had a major problem using Malwarebytes and Spybot -- and have never found any benefit by using SuperAntiSpyware -- methinks the latter is a waste of time and hard drive space.

Then again, take my review with a grain of ? something.

What's new in version 5.0.1134
  • 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.
