Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This extremely basic application might help guard your browser from hijacks, but it's far from a full-blown antimalware application. The program's bland, unattractive interface is at least easy to use, as you'll only find four icons. Spyware and Adware Removal includes something like a real-time shield, but its performance failed to impress us. Also, the pop-up blocker doesn't work well at all. Don't expect a comprehensive scanning engine like most antispyware applications provide, as this program only ferrets out browser-helper objects. That said, it does its work quickly and did detect the majority of malicious BHOs we installed for testing purposes. However, since you can find many more powerful antispware programs that also perform this same function, we doubt most people will find this bare-bones offering necessary. At least it's free.
