"A predatory program"

February 05, 2016  |  By dgdmn

2016-02-05 10:15:26  |  By dgdmn

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2015 3.0.0.102

Pros

Not sure if there are any pros

Cons

Does not allow you to uninstall. I cannot believe CNET distributes this. Search the Web for all the complaints of people trying to rid themselves of this. It installs Spyware Terminator 2012 even though it pretends to be updated. I don't know if it once was legit and changed, but do not install it as I did. I still haven't figured out how to get rid of it. AVG won't even install when it finds you have this on your computer.

Summary

A dishonest, malicious program posing as a help to rid you of programs like itself.

"Free version 3.0.0.102 does not exists!"

September 11, 2015  |  By fotobarje

2015-09-11 06:05:25  |  By fotobarje

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2015 3.0.0.102

Pros

No results.

Cons

Installing by downloaded setup and launching the program it required the license number which supposed to purchase the Pro version. No option for free version possible.

Summary

Installing by downloaded setup.exe for free version useless. Application does not start without license number.

"database updates fail repeatedly"

June 07, 2015  |  By BOBRGR

2015-06-07 19:59:22  |  By BOBRGR

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2015 3.0.0.101

Pros

2012 version worked OK...2015 NOT SO MUCH.

Cons

I refreshed a seldom used PC, installing Spyware Terminator 2015 to replace 2012.
The database is 161 days old but won't update after repeated attempts
The website was no help
I found a site that claimed to offer a database download, but when I unpacked it, the date was 2012

Summary

I use 2012 on a few PC's...I won't be going to 2015 and may just uninstall those that I have. Between avast, malwarebytes, windows defender and super anti-spyware this just isn't needed. Installing ST 2015 was just a waste of my time...after reading my review perhaps it'll save you some time. there are plenty of anti-malware programs that actually work.

"Malware program."

September 10, 2014  |  By anhedonic67

2014-09-10 21:43:33  |  By anhedonic67

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.82

Pros

None, unless you love headaches.

Cons

Malware, pure and simple. This program interrupts any running program and throws the computer back to the desktop to try to get you to purchase the full version. When I tried to uninstall, I received a message saying the uninstall file did not work. After reloading three times and getting the same message, I called their help line. They tried to scam me by saying it was due to administration event errors and wanted to charge me $199 to fix it. Absolutely horrid program.

Summary

This program is only good for infecting your computer.

"Doesn't work quite as I want"

August 05, 2014  |  By howardferns

2014-08-05 03:35:54  |  By howardferns

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.82

Pros

Fast Scan takes 1 to 2 minutes.
Installed on 3 computers, it detected a trojan on the first one, that no other tool had found. I was suspicious of this and fully expected it to find the same one on the other two, but as it was only on one computer I have to assume it was genuine.

Cons

All I want is something I can scan with now and again, but every time I run Spyware Terminator it adds its Updater to my startup. I don't want it running all the time, and there doesn't seem to be an option to prevent this. I'd rather be able to click for a simple update before scanning, like you do with MalwareBytes.

"Absolute DUD"

December 29, 2013  |  By dollo007

2013-12-29 02:16:19  |  By dollo007

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.82

Pros

Was able to install and had a good interface.. thats all

Cons

Literally slows down the system as rightly mentioned by the CNET crew. Identified a rogur object , hanged the system and had to restart the system. Finally uninstalled it. Anytime would go with MBAM or SAS.

Summary

Not worthy enough..

2013-11-11 18:01:51  |  By t-link

Pros

-light on resources

Cons

-lets a lot of malware and spyware on the system
-free version is extremely limited

"Highly Overrated"

November 08, 2013  |  By super14man1

2013-11-08 15:25:49  |  By super14man1

 |  Version: Spyware Terminator 2012 3.0.0.82

Pros

It is a good antimalware when it is free version and the pro version has so many features and uses little resources.

Cons

Uses Fprot antivirus which isn't considered a great antivirus, but it's other signatures make up for that.

Summary

Very great antimalware, a lot better than 16th place for sure maybe should be in the top five and even the top three.
