    "Free version updates"

    January 5, 2013  |   By aceteleman


    I've used Superantispyware, the full version, in the past and I'm impressed with the product.


    However, I'm not sure they understand what Free means. To me it doesn't mean a ONE TIME use and then it won't update. I decided to try the Superantispyware Free version, because of past experience, and recommended it to a lot of friends in a tech tip page I run on Facebook. I didn't know that I'd only be able to update on the intial installation. Now before I can update the definitions I have to 'purchase' a license. Even TRIAL version generally will function for at least 30 days.

    I also didn't like the quck scan when you finish the install, it scanned things I didn't want scanned before I could get to any settings to exempt that drive.

    I have used and still use some very excellent FREE software, Malwarebytes being on of the most prominent, and the FREE version has functined perfectly for several years on two different computers.

    I'm very displeased, as a businessman myself, with this kind of sales tactic and I've let them know about it. No response as of yet....


    Although I think this is a great tool, I'd be hard pressed to recommend it to anybody again. And I feel this is very shady sales tactics to basically force you to purchase if you want to continue using their product properly. If I tried this with my customers I wouldn't be in business long. I'm surprised they are still on the market if this is how they operate.

    Not a happy camper about any of this, especially after quite a few of my friends have downloaded it and used it their ONE time and now are upset at me to a degree.
