    "Stopped updates of their software"

    February 5, 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.

    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.

    "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.
