"Stopped updates of their software"

February 05, 2013  |  By williamoss

 |  Version: XoftSpy SE Anti-Spyware 7.0

Pros

Worked seamlessly in the past, no conflicts with Norton program, picked up most malware, spy ware etc.

Cons

They stopped writing software updates as of December 10, 2012. Their explanation is they are writing a new version, to be out shortly. This is the same excuse I got from their customer support team in July, 2012 when the software stooped updating on a weekly update. Since that time there have been only 2 updates one in September 2012 and another in December 2012.

Summary

They software unfortunately is worthless as of today (Feb 5, 2013) because the software is not updating. If they ever come out with a new version It may be good. BUT IN THE MEAN TIME THEY SHOULD BE SUPPORTING THE CURRENT VERSION WITH WEEKLY UPDATES. I PAID FOR 1 YEAR SERVICE WITH THE WEEKLY UPDATES BUT I AM NOT GETTING IT ANYMORE.

"Lousy software"

July 18, 2010  |  By lb_tiger39208

 |  Version: XoftSpy SE Anti-Spyware 7.0

Pros

I can't think of anything good to say about this product

Cons

Adds nearly ten minutes to my PC boot time just to load the database.
Lousy quality control, tech support dept does not return emails. In short, a shoddy at best product

Summary

Their support site doesn't respond to or acknowledge email other than an auto generated one. Just tried renewing my sub last week, update the key and good until date, but still get two nag screens a day asking me to renew it. Freshman college programmers can write better programs than this. Don't waste your time or money with it. I've uninstalled the product and will go to my bank in the morning and ask them to rescind my renewal payment.

"OK to use with another anti malware applications"

July 08, 2010  |  By keluskar

 |  Version: XoftSpy SE Anti-Spyware 7.0

Pros

Scanning speed is great.
Consumes very less resourses.

Cons

Misses a lot of spywares.
No real time protection.
Creates start up entry and starts with Windows and does no work but sits in a corner and waits for you to scan your pc.

After that spy-ware doctor could not find anything. both programs compatible So ran them togeather and computer kept clean. Removed spyware doctor. now use avg and xoftspy SE no problems.

"Rogue antivirus software"

December 13, 2009  |  By Issaland

 |  Version: XoftSpy SE Anti-Spyware 7.0

Pros

absolutely none

Cons

Everything is bad form ParetoLogic. They are scammers and you will risk a lot giving them your credit card details. Also your computer will be more infected with XoftSpy than before.

Summary

This is a rogue. ParetoLogic is bad host/website listed on phHosts website and has bad opinions and ratings on Web Of Trust (WOT).
ParetoLogics are scammers who wants your money for their unusable, crappy software which make more harm than good for the PC.
