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.

"Life Saver"

Pros

Free, free, free, will definitely catch a bunch of the little nasties, also did I mention it's free?

Cons

The name makes people think you have to be a tech nerd to use it when it actually couldn't be easier to use.

Summary

I don't know how many computers I went through before I found this, but it was a lot. They'd bog down until they'd stop working and because I didn't want to pay a bunch of money to get someone to fix them, I'd just replace the computer. No more! I run this a couple of times a week and it's like my computer is brand new again. I truly can't believe how easy it is to make my computer work properly. I'm so happy this exists!!
