"Remove spyware, NOT just the easy ones!"
Nowadays, security is more important than ever as sensitive information is constantly exchanged between our PCs and the internet. In order to achieve a decent level of protection, running an antivirus solution is not enough as there are other types of threats such as spyware and malware that can’t be detected by such utilities. SUPERAntiSpyware is an antispyware and malware protection program that comes in two flavors: a free and a premium version. Let’s review the free edition of SUPERAntiSpyware as we weigh its features and protection capabilities.
The installation process of SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition is fast and straightforward. Thanks to a small setup kit of just 12MB, you will be able to download it in mere seconds and just wiz through the installation wizard. You should be happy to find out that SUPERAntiSpyware supports all of the Windows operating systems since Win 98 and it doesn't come with adware/spyware or other install programs.
In the latest version of SUPERAntiSpyware, the interface received a big improvement and it certainly is one of the tool’s strengths. This is also the first thing you will notice if you have already used SUPERAntiSpyware in the past. The main window has gone through a major overhaul and it looks much more modern and slicker than before. In addition, it is also a bit more user-friendly as the placement of the controls and buttons allows for a smooth navigation. Novice users will enjoy using SUPERAntiSpyware for everyday tasks due to its ease of use. Overall, the interface of this anti-spyware utility is a winner from all points of view!
A notable change in version 5.7 is the new placeholder for quarantine management, scan logs, and repair features. These can now be accessed via the "System Tools & Program Settings" button, right under the "Scan your computer" button.
New in version 5.7: the program can now identify potentially unwanted programs and securely remove them.
Designed for the detection and removal of adware, spyware, dialers, keyloggers, worms, Trojans, rootkits, hijackers and fake or rogue security products, SUPERAntiSpyware must be run alongside a regular antivirus program in order to get rid of true viruses or boot-sector viruses. SUPERAntiSpyware is a feature-packed tool with two new features making their debut in its latest version. Rescue Scan allows you to perform a scan even though a certain malware takes 100% of your CPU. The power of the CPU is reduced so the scan can be performed.
The second useful feature is Critical Point Scan and it is a new scan type that works by examining the critical areas of your system for malware infections. The Registry, Memory Processes, Services and more than 50 Critical Load Points are scanned. Other notable features include a fast startup and scan. The Repair buttons allows you to undo any damage that a spyware might have caused and it’s a feature rarely seen in today’s antispyware utilities.
Some threats were left running after the program allegedly removed them.
Let’s have a look at some of the available alternatives to SUPERAntiSpyware. These include the following tools: Spybot - Search & Destroy, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Ad-Aware Free Internet Security, Spyware Terminator and many more.
All in all, SUPERAntiSpyware is a decent antispyware utility that boasts many great features and functionality and is an excellent addition to your security arsenal.
