Super Anti-Spyware

Not sure why I downloaded this as I had AVG which was considered really good. But this one found stuff AVG didn't.

Installed it on my new PC too as it started running slowly and it found a trojan that 'coincidentally' arrived with a Windows update. Thanks Microsoft. The new PC has McAffee on it and until this program found it McAffee didn't have a clue.

It's important to know that if you are banking online and are defrauded, the small print from the banks will put the blame on you if you have no defenses, even a freebie like this or another free version of something.

This is a sound little program, how it helps someone.

AVG is crap



Yeah, didn't used to be though.

Yes, I use this, but also Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, which is also free, highly effective and a little easier to use.

Wow, cold votes on a freebie that is a really nice program. Makes me wonder whether to bother on here anymore.

Will check this out, 2nd opinions are always handy. Cheers.

Yes , but SuperAntiSpyware is not an anti-virus program , AVG is , although seems poor nowadays.
You wouldn't use SAS in place of AVG ,AVAST ,McAffee,Norton , Panda ,Kaspersky and countless others .
SuperAntiSpyware as the name suggests is for finding spyware ,malware,ransomware on PC's and laptops .MalwareBytes is another program that should be on your PC or laptop .

:Dthank you for the post and the advice

worth having alongside the free Microsost Internet security

i use spyware doctor with antivirus, but have ran out of keygen and spyware doc is getting too clever on us nowadays. cant use any keygen just trial version works on it now.

Already use:

AVG Free
Super Anti-Spyware
Malwarebytes

SO WHAT'S THE BEST FREE REPLACEMENT FOR AVG?

voted hot btw - good program

Avast is better than Avg these days and lighter on resources too.

agreed free avast uses less resourses or if u bank with barcklays they give kaspersky free.
i have kaspersky but i dont rate the format dont find it too easy to use
Would be interesting in what other people think to kaspersky 2011?


HOT. been using this for ages always been free.

Thanks so much for this. Didn't know about it and it has just removed all kinds from my lap top. Thanks again.

superanti spyware is very good and so is AVG never had a problem with it

Sorry to burst peoples bubbles here but this program has more problems than AVG and MacAfee.

All three are resource heavy for what they are and all drag down performance. IOBit, Lavasoft and Spybot are the better options for spyware. Steer clear of this.

LOL - put a proper AV on your PC and then come back and tell us how many viruses AVG has been ignoring!

That works both ways if you put any antivirus program on I would say nine times out of ten it will find extra problems that you original one did not it is a fact of life.

lol - thats complete BS

9 times out of 10, the PC's I have to remove viruses from have AVG installed and kaspersky always finds loads more that AVG had let through

AVG really is a pile of crap but feel free to carry on using it. Just not a good thing to recommend it to others!

Not that having me vote it hot makes much difference lol, but I can also recommend SAS, it helped me out of a viscious little malware situation I was having problems getting rid of, and it's free!!!

Lavasoft fails to pick up a lot of the worst malware out there, I'm an IT engineer of many years and have used most of them over the years trying to find a half decent one. Sure Lavasoft's it will find 19847 files but they're all just cookies or basic stuff, and MacAfee has always been total sh1t3 considering you pay for it lol. You nearly always need more than one Anti-Malware program to find the real swines out there

Sorry to pop your own bubble there!

No need to be rude I can only coment on many years of my own experiences I have no problem recomending AVG but would avoid the toolbar option back to topic you need to run an antispyware program as well such superantispyware both are free .

Sorry but i disagree.. well at least for spybot,it used to be a great program but its had its day..Super anti spyware is tons better, or malware bytes, another cracking programme.. Think of the speed like the police after theif. What would you want, a quick search down the streets, or a full garden search as well.. Lol sorry, lame i know but the best explanation
