    "Essential tool that really finds more evil wickedness!"

    June 3, 2009  |   By Zenbob96

    Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 4.26.1004

    Pros

    Very fast, yet able to scan and catch more evil doers than most other tools, free or otherwise. Easy, very easy to use interface, frequent updates make this a great tool.

    Cons

    It would be great if it were a resident, real-time program. This would use more resources, granted, but this would almost make it perfect.

    Summary

    As said, it is one of my essential recommendations. Use it with Spybot, Adaware, TC, Rising PC Doctor, MalwareBytes and you should be well protected from the worst of the Internet threats. Of course, one should also have a good firewall, and aggressive real time AV protection. My top AV suggestions are Avast, AVG, Trend, Avira, Bitdefender, Kaspersky, Rising AV, Vipre and Panda AV. Pick one, as most will not play friendly with othe AV products...the "I am a jealous God" syndrome. I sort of wish that all of the reputable AV companies would get together, pool their resources and have one uniform and universal updated definition file that would be updated hourly allowing each AV scanner to update at whatever interval the user thought best. Each user could then choose or buy whichever interface and scan engine they thought best...and whenever possible those scan engines should be designed to work in concert harmoniously, if users wished, rather than being total security hogs. Just a thought people...

    "Works Great on XP but not at all on WIN98SE"

    May 30, 2009  |   By musicman4you

    Version: SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition 4.26.1004

    Pros

    Love this program and works great on my Windows XP computer

    Cons

    Does not work on Windows 98SE.The RUNSAS that looks like a beetle or bug when you look in program files and open up SuperAntiSyware will not update on Windows 98.IIt took almost 5 hours to uninstall all of the stuff left behind by SuperAntiSpyware.

    Summary

    Won't work on Windows 98.Will not let you update.I even clicked on Program Files and then the RUNSAS under SuperAntiSpyware that looks like a Bug or Beetle since I tried everything else.It told me I need a Newer Version of Windows for it to work. It took almost 5 hours to uninstall all of the stuff left behind by SuperAntiSpyware and uninstalling this newer version to go back to the older version.I have a paid Registry Cleaner that found 22 of the items left behind after clicking remove under add and remove programs.Works fine on my Windows XP computer but will not update or work on Windows 98SE.If it wont work on Windows 98 they should tell you before going through so much trouble.If anybody can get this to work on WIN98 or WIN98SE please tell me how.GOOD LUCK and I wish it did work on WIN98SE

    Updated on Jul 11, 2009

    I should have given this a higher review.Just because it doesn't work on WIN 98SE doesn't mean it isn't a GREAT PROGRAM.One of my favorites on XP along with MalwareBytes.....They should remove that it works for 98SE though.
