"SuperAntiSpyware Professional Catches A Lot"

March 24, 2013  |  By GeneralUSA

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Professional 5

Pros

Dependable. Seems to catch a lot of tracking cookies that some malware and antivirus programs are not catching. It has caught a few trojans and/or really bad stuff.

Cons

It really should remember what it caught and add it to a block list or allow a block option list to be compiled. Not quite that automatic in catching stuff -- have to manually run scans; it does not seem to pre-block the same items.

Summary

I like how it works along side other antivirus and malware software. I don't like how you have to manually search. Not that attractive. Slows system down, sometimes on complete scans. It really should be more intuitive with items it caught and prevent those same items from reattaching. I'm not a pro tech person, just muddle around enough to get self into trouble. Liked the product and bought it though because offered $9.95 price incentive.

"I kid you not finds everything other programs miss"

September 22, 2012  |  By spnut10951

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Professional 5

Pros

high detection rate a lot of programs don't do as well as this when it comes to the malware area of there scanners but this program does.

Cons

user interface could use some visual work looks a little bland.

Summary

over all I would give this program a 4.5/5 detection rate and a 3.5 for visual looks.

"CANNOT GO BACK TO FREE! Will Not Work If You Go Back!!"

August 19, 2012  |  By Millwork

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Professional 5

Pros

While working as the Professional edition, did a good job. Just don't change your mind after the first year and go back to the Free Edition.

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

After a few years of using the Free Edition, upgraded to Professional...I liked the automatic updates and scans. In 2010, I decided to go back to the Free edition and that was fine...just manually updating and scanning. 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 products files and features...period...ever!!! SEE "CONS" Above!

"Free verson great, pro sucks"

June 21, 2012  |  By clap5118

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Professional 5

Pros

Effective scanning and finds problems missed by other programs

Cons

Bought pro version out of gratitude for usefulness of free version. Slows your computer WAY down. I thought I had a virus until I shut off the real time protection, then everything went back to normal. So much for altruism

Summary

Stick to free version.

"DO NOT INSTALL"

June 06, 2012  |  By Omega79

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Professional 5

Pros

Absolutely nothing unless you like to torture yourself.

Cons

This is what any computer tech worth their weight would consider a rogue program. Which means the program either does not function as described or performs unwanted functions the user is unaware of.

Summary

Another example of how CNET is getting a little too relaxed about what it will allow on it's site. Nothing like seeing known bad software being offered AND advertised on this website that we used to be able to expect better from.

"Jury is still out on this one, I have Pro version"

May 22, 2012  |  By southernrican2

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Professional 5

Pros

Easy to install, free version works fine.

Cons

Uses a lot of resources, don't think so, check the starups.

Summary

Kind of asinine to update the free version, prior to the paid Pro version. Updated definitions fine, not program version, which leads me to conclude that once you pay, one is taken for granted.

"Great program and customer service!"

April 20, 2012  |  By Eric_Traugott

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Professional 5

Pros

Great free product
Great customer service

Cons

I can't think of any.

Summary

I have been using this program for years and I just recently spoke with their customer service. Not only did they answer my question but they helped with a few other things while they were at it ( I had a few not so helpful responses from other companies).

"Cleans Very Well on 64-bit Windows 7"

February 28, 2012  |  By Madlax69

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Professional 5

Pros

I commonly utilize different Spyware tools in my arsenal from time to time. This tool seem to be the counter weapon of choice along with Norton 360 2012 for tools this year. Last year was Xoftspy SE but I do not get those signatures anymore so I did not renew that subscription. This software removes stubborn registry infections that prevent Windows from removing cookies properly. Now Windows and Norton can remove cookies.

Cons

I would have to say sometimes if other resources are maximizing like Norton scanning and Windows media player streams it tends to slow down the machine even tweaking the software to not hog the processor as much. Use the boosting feature to high to prevent throttling during a system scan. I suspect it's not the softwares fault just other hackers performing countermeasures to invade the system for other signatures that Norton and Super Anti-Spyware can not detect.

Summary

Overall, I have a pretty good selection this time. After all hackers try compromising computer systems once new software is installed. This goes for Anti-virus, spy-ware and malware programs too this is no exception.

To complement your security I recommend a proxy software to use for security. Depending on your Internet connection speed if it is slow I would not recommend it. I like jumping to additional servers to hide from hackers. However if your Big-Brother they will find you no matter what. They are the people who litter your machine with spyware and bypass your programs. I'm no one important I just value privacy if I can try.

Proxy software I would recommend is Go Trusted proxy software with a 7 day trial with a credit card on file or Proxy Goblin which is the most expensive $67.99 and Easy Hide IP with a 3 day trial, than $29.99 to buy.

"Excellent Anti-Spyware Product"

February 26, 2012  |  By Randy Bell

 |  Version: SuperAntiSpyware Professional 5

Pros

Easy to understand interface, plenty of tweaking options. Excellent detection rate. Updates often. Inexpensive.

Cons

not many, possibly the updates could be smaller - but MalwareBytes Anti-Malware has huge updates so SAS isn't that bad in comparison.

Summary

This product does as advertised with little user intervention. I've recommended it to friends and family. I'm a bit of a PC Security buff, having won a couple of Microsoft MVP awards in Windows Security, and I can say that SAS is one of the best - like MBAM, SAS is a good product to run alongside a good Anti-Virus product. I don't understand the comments about resources; SAS doesn't normally use up many resources; and you can run SAS just as a Windows Service for full protection; you don't need to run SAS in the System Tray. SAS runs well in both 32- and 64-bit environments.
