"A RIP-OFF PACKAGE DEAL!!!!!!."

April 08, 2009  |  By 12wqhan

 |  Version: XoftSpy SE Anti-Spyware 4.22

Pros

ABSOLUTELY NONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cons

TELLS YOU OF "SPECIAL OFFER," XoftSpy SE Anti-Spyware "PACKAGED WITH "RegCure" for additional $9.95, then try to use and it says it must be registered. only "good for today (4/08/2009) It's a lie!!!!! Can only reach support through snail-mail!!!!!!!!

Summary

Packaged order is a FRAUD! STAY AWAY FROM "RegCure" and its "packed "free" XoftSpy SE !!!!!!!! Good for 1 day, free product dosen't work. Contact support is snail-mail which will take you beyond 1 day.
Download.com should REMOVE this product and report them!

March 05, 2009  |  By roaringm

 |  Version: XoftSpy SE Anti-Spyware 4.22

Pros

The design is easy to use which is important but...

Doesn;t protect from all current viruses and hacks nor did it identify all trojans.

I found this service much better for protecting my info.

"Very weak on detection"

February 28, 2009  |  By sfmarkopolo

 |  Version: XoftSpy SE Anti-Spyware 4.22

Pros

Nothing good to say

Cons

Doesn't ever find anything. This is the weakest anti-spy program on the internet.

Summary

A total waste of time. Pass on this one. It's useless.

"Excellent product"

January 22, 2009  |  By Jeanetta

 |  Version: XoftSpy SE Anti-Spyware 4.22

Pros

Scans fast and is easy to understand. It finds & gets rid of the problems that other anti-spy programs can't find nor delete. I can always depend on it to do a keep my computer spyware and adware free.....and the price is very reasonable.

Cons

I have NO cons to add here

Summary

This is a simple program that even newbies can understand. A deep scan takes only a minute or two (DSL). It updates automatically, when it's first opened. I've used this product for at least a year now and I wouldn't be without it. I don't know why this program isn't at the top of the list.....it should be.

"Always a catch"

November 12, 2008  |  By allib_1

 |  Version: XoftSpy SE Anti-Spyware 4.22

Pros

Nothing good to say about xoftspy

Cons

They tell you it's free until you have to remove the junk . then want you to spring for $39.00

Summary

The fact they give you a free download should send the Red flags up indicating there is a catch. I have used numerous other products that were free not try and con you into buying their product in order to clean and get rid of any issues on your computer.
Thumbs down!!

"Stay away from this software"

August 14, 2008  |  By isalbro

 |  Version: XoftSpy SE Anti-Spyware 4.22

Cons

There are much better anti spyware programs and even free ones exactly as good. If you have activated a few times it stops activating unless you contact support for reset. Last time I had to format my HDD and the same problem again. I know about piracy, but it can be very annoying and they do not seam to care about the customers, only about themselves. SO, FIND ANOTHER ANTI SPYWARE, WITHOUT THIS PROBLEM. You just pay a yearly fee for inconvinience.

"Worst."

June 07, 2008  |  By BrokenButterfly

 |  Version: XoftSpy SE Anti-Spyware 4.22

Pros

A nice interface perhaps.

Cons

Gives false positives, the trial version doesn't remove spyware but reports that it has detected it. However, all of them are just false positives to lure people to get the program. XoftSpy SE Anti-Spyware is not really known for good reviews. I suggest people to find a better product, as this thing is nothing but crap. I will NOT RECOMMEND this anti-spyware to anyone.

"There's something called Rogue Malware Removers :)"

June 01, 2008  |  By shockwavesn1per

 |  Version: XoftSpy SE Anti-Spyware 4.22

Pros

False positives. Tracking "cookies" are not data miners. They track your surfing behavior.

Cons

Pay to remove?! How bull is that? I mean com'on even Spyware Doctor (one of the worse) can find something.
