    "Has always been good till last week"

    March 11, 2014  |   By ervinsmith1024

    Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.7.1018

    Pros

    Tried to run it, and it would not load, it said something was missing. So I run 2 other antispyware and they found nothing. So I uninstalled it. Ran defrag, and my advanced system care ultimate. rebooted and reinstalled it. Ran it, and it messed up so many programs. I had to spend hours uninstalling them, and setting them back up. oh boy. don't know what happened actually.

    Cons

    wiped out many of my programs. I had to uninstall and reinstall even Google Chrome before they would work again. Bummer

    Summary

    Took hours to fix what it messed up after useing it for years without any problems.

    "Takes up CPU time without asking."

    March 4, 2014  |   By kbuikmvaj

    Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.7.1018

    Pros

    Does a good job of finding a lot of stuff.

    Cons

    Updater runs without asking and monopolizes the machine.

    Summary

    This is a supposed to be a malware fighter but I think a program that just starts up of its own accord even when it's not in your startup programs is not that far from malware. I sat down to the computer to find it running its head off with something. Looked in the task manager and SSUPDATER was taking about 50% of the CPU time. I checked and sure enough it was not in the startup folder.

    "SuperAntiSpyware Professional Edition 5.6.1020"

    February 23, 2014  |   By quietodin

    Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.7.1018

    Pros

    I recommend that you download the Pro version for $19.99 for 365 days of protection that includes the Real-time protection, scheduled scanning and automatic updates. The interface is very user friendly and easy to install and use. Even though it doesn't detect viruses I have a very comprehensive anitvirus software already that takes care of that very well.

    Cons

    There are no cons with the Pro version as far as I am concerned.

    Summary

    I have been using this for two years now and it has been very effective for me. The scanning feature is very quick and affective for me. Thank you!

    Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.7.1018

    I have had this Professional version for 15 years and it is powerful.

    I use them on both Windows 7 Home Premium and Win-7 Professional

    Cons

    none at all!!!

    Summary

    go 4 it!

    "Beware, this contains adware!"

    February 18, 2014  |   By Bill_Go

    Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.7.1018

    Pros

    None that I could see.

    Cons

    This download contained numerous unwanted, worthless additional software programs that are disguised as helpful tools.
    Call it adware, malware, whatever... it's NOT something that you want.

    Summary

    CNET needs to address this immediately! In the least, they need to remove their 5-star rating from this product. It's worthless.
