Editors' Review

+

Spyware is nasty business, threatening your security by collecting information about your online activity without your knowledge or consent. SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition is a comprehensive program that can scan and delete spyware and a variety of other types of malware. Although the program cannot deal with true viruses, it's capable of finding and annihilating plenty of other pests.

The program's interface is straightforward, with a large button labeled "Scan your Computer" leading users to the most important feature. Radio buttons let users select a Quick Scan, Complete Scan, Critical Point Scan, or Custom Scan. We decided to start with the Quick scan, which took about three and a half minutes. SuperAntiSpyware detected 107 "threats," all of which were fairly benign tracking cookies. A full scan took much longer - about four hours - and turned up two "critical threats" and 25 "potentially unwanted programs/settings." We were able to deselect any items we wanted to retain using a checkbox, and then delete the rest with the click of a button. The program also has a selection of repairs that can be run to undo damage done by malware, and a scan log keeps a history of all the threats that have been deleted. SuperAntiSpyware has a comprehensive list of FAQs on its Web site, though we found the program easy to use without additional guidance. Overall, we think that SuperAntiSpyware is a good way to supplement your regular antivirus program, and we recommend it.

SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly.

"Good antispyware product, terrible memory management"

October 20, 2012  |  By kd5

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.0.1150

Pros

Good antispyware detection and removal.

Cons

Ridiculous consumption of memory.

Summary

I like this antispyware application, it does a good job of detecting and removing the garbage that can infect/infest your computer from the internet. But I wish they would address the MASSIVE amount of memory consumed by their application. It's not so much a problem with the newer computers which have an ungodly amount of memory installed, but for older XP computers SAS can consume ALL of 512mb of RAM and want MORE. SAS seems to do fine with a gb of memory installed, but any less than that.....

When will they address the massive amount of memory consumed by SAS? -1/2 star for being a memory hog. -kd5-

"Wow, so many different thougths of you guys about SAS!!"

September 10, 2012  |  By XP-2002

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.0.1150

Pros

For me it yesterday took away Babyloon Toolbar, as have been away of use, but stucker in my PC.. I have heard other people said the same about the Babyloon.. But this SuperAntiSpyware found and took away it, the last peace of it.. yeahhh happy.. but I had forget that I had it, it was a time since I got it. But it even found a Trojan, calling Trojan Agent Gen - Dun Dun. As my Avast did not have felt.

Cons

I have Avast for Free since many years ago working in the background, it is like an old friend, you know..!!

Summary

But this, SAS, was the first and only Spyware-program i Downloaded yesterday, and will keep it, because I trust it when it find the Babyloon, as I knew I had, but could not get it out of my PC. So it was a strong proof to see what kind of Anti-virus program it is!! And do any of you know something about the Trojan Agent Gen-Dun Dun.. what it is made for to do?? Would be very interested if some of you could write the answer to me here in my Review. Thanks and regards from Marianne, in Stockholm,Sweden..

"If you upgrade to Professional, cannot go back to Free!"

August 19, 2012  |  By Millwork

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.0.1150

Pros

Works well as long as you do not upgrade to Professional...You cannot go back to the Free eddition...Even after uninstalling and reinstalling!

Cons

If you upgrade to Professional and then go back to Free after a year, cannot update the product's files and features. I even removed it and downloaded a fresh instance and still could not update or scan manually. I then removed the program again, then scanned registry and found an entry still pointing to superantispyware. Cleared that erro and downloaded again...still cannot scan. Same results after several attempts.

Summary

For many years this did a fine job. After a few years, upgraded to Professional and I liked the automatic updates and scans. One year, I decided to go back to the Free edition and that was fine. After a couple of months, responded to a "Nag" for discounted Professional and upgraded again. After that year's subscription expired, decided to go back to the Free edition for a while. That was a few days ago. Now, cannot update the product's files and features...period...ever!!!
