Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Though this antispyware scanner has a limited database of malware (about 450 items), it did a decent job of stopping and finding intruders in our tests. The real-time protection managed to stop all adware trying to install. However, the small database told on scan results so that Free Spyware Scanner missed several malware executables and DLLs (for instance, WebHancer and MultiDropper). The program offers several tools for immunizing your PC against malware (an ActiveX shield, for instance) or repairing your browser and system settings after removing adware (for example, fixing LSP). Free Spyware Scanner's tree interface is not very handy for viewing and sorting large lists of found items. The software won t excite much attention, considering the number of quality free anti-spyware tools.
