SpywareKill

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This program turns out decent adware-detection and adware-removal performance, but it conspicuously lacks key features. The good news is SpywareKill boasts quick scans and accurate results; it found just about all the malware items we installed for testing purposes. The utility can keep logs of scans and quarantine offending programs, but it fails to include a scheduler and a real-time protection module. Happily, the demo now lets you remove problematic files and modules and also allows you to update its definitions database. Therefore, we can recommend testing SpywareKill for the one-week trial period, but you'll probably also want to try out a few similar programs with better feature sets.
