Various complex security threats and their infection mechanisms are affecting the computer system nowadays and we need something which can detect and remove the nastiest malware from the system.superantispyware revieww

SuperAntiSpyware review

SuperAntiSpyware, as the name suggests is a tool specifically designed to remove the spyware and its list of target include Spyware, Adware and remove Malware, Trojans, Dialers, Worms, KeyLoggers, HiJackers, Parasites, Rootkits, Rogue Security Products and many other types of threats. SUPERAntiSpyware seems to be one of the best anti-spyware programs in terms of its efficacy. However it cannot replace the powerful antivirus programs like say, Bitdefender, which I am already using, but yes I am impressed with its usefulness and functionality.

SUPERAntiSpyware features many unique and powerful technologies and removes spyware threats that other applications fail to remove. SUPERAntiSpyware also offers a free online scanner. The latest version SUPERAntiSpyware 5.6 comes with a lot of new features, including better detection & removal capabilities

Features of SuperAntiSpyware

  • It can detect and remove Spyware, Adware and Remove Malware, Trojans, Dialers, Worms, Key Loggers, Hijackers, Parasites, Rootkits, Rogue Security Products and many other types of threats.
  • Unlike the other anti-spyware programs, it is absolutely lightweight and does not slow down your computer system’s speed. One of the exclusive features of this program is that it does not conflict with the existing anti-virus program in your PC.
  • It comes with a unique Repair System which repairs the broken internet connections and registry editing.
  • The latest version SuperAntySpyware 5.6 comes with a quicker Application Startup and a faster scanning. The real-time protection engine is also improved greatly.
  • This version has a new and better interface with more powerful scheduling system.superantispyware...

Why I Prefer SuperAntiSpyware

  • One of the best features of SuperAntiSpyware is that it is compatible with other antivirus programs. I am using Bitdefender presently but when I installed SuperAntiSpyware on my system, it worked very well without having any counteractions with my existing antivirus program. It is perfectly compatible to other security programs and does not create any problems with other anti-spyware programs.
  • This is a lightweight program and uses just 500KB RAM of my system. What I never liked about the security programs was that they slow down the speed of PC but that is not the scene with SuperAntiSpyware. My computer runs with a very fine speed even when the program is scanning the potential threat areas.
  • Unlike the other spyware programs I have reviewed, this application removes even the sophisticated malware. Its advanced rootkit removal technology, direct disk access and registry access are some of its features making it stand out of the multitude of anti-spyware.
  • When I installed this program and started the scan, to my surprise this program detected many malicious programs and rootkits resided in my system. Though it didn’t come out with any Trojans (thanks to my Bitdefender) but it removed the other bugs and improved my PC’s speed significantly.
  • What’s more, it didn’t bring the nasty and irritating toolbars or add-screens along.

SuperAntiSpyware is a reliable tool in terms of malware detection and removal. It is available both as a free product and as a paid one. The free version is best suitable for personal use and comes with limited functions. Although the program is light on resources and installs quickly but the free version lacks some very important features likes real-time protection, scheduling and limited repairing functions and automatic update. It can thus be used as a second-opinion anti-malware tool on your computer.

    Really surprised that SuperAntiSpyware has found that many malicious files that were not found by Bitdefender. I tried this software long back but didn’t like it for some reasons. Its just my opinion.

    SuperAntiSpyware (SAS), despite its stupid name, is one of two of the best anti-spyware tools out there… the other being MALWARE BYTES (MB). Another poster, here, remarked that s/he couldn’t believe SAS found so much stuff that BitDefender missed. It’s not so much that BitDefender missed stuff as much as it is that tools like SAS and MB aren’t really the same as tools like BitDefender; they look for different stuff in different ways. Don’t get me wrong, some anti-virus tools like BitDefeder contain anti-spyware capabilities, but not to the degree that specialized products like SAS and MB do.

    One needs, on one’s machine, BOTH a fully-fledged anti-virus tool like BitDefender or COMODO INTERNET SECURITY, or AVG, or AVIRA, etc. (which may or may not have a little anti-spyware capability in it), as WELL as a tool that’s dedicated to spyware, like SAS and MB. And, yes, you need BOTH SAS and MB because they actually search for things a bit differently, and what one misses the other will, for sure, find. MB also has better “zero day” detection… that is, it detects stuff that’s so new that it’s not yet in anyone’s anti-spyware database.

    For the longest time Lavasoft’s “Ad-Aware” was the big kid on the block for anti-spyware; then “Spybot Search and Destroy” kinda’ succeeded it. But both those tools, compared with SAS and/or MB (and ESPECIALLY both SAS and MB, together) now pale, by comparison.

    The freeware versions of both SAS and MB are good enough. The only difference between them and the commercial versions is that the commercial versions will sit in the system tray and provide realtime protection, if desired; and you can also schedule scans. But most anti-virus software will do that sufficiently well that all you really need to do is manual whole system scans using SAS and MB maybe weekly or twice monthly; and the freeware versions are EXCELLENT at that! If you’ve got a huge hard drive, it can take a while, so once a week or twice a month just start one of them before you go to bed and let it run while you sleep; then the next night do the same with the other. Between your regular anti-virus program, augmented by SAS and MB weekly or twice-monthly manual whole system scans, pretty much nothing bad will be able to stay for very long on your machine.

    One cool thing about even the freeware SAS is that if you let it sit in the system tray and run all the time, no, it won’t do realtime protection (you’d need the commercial version for that), but it will watch-out for anything trying to hijack your browser’s homepage, and will stop it, cold. That’s kinda’ cool. It also has some very nifty repair tools to reverse some of the awfulness that spyware can sometimes do to a machine. Seriously, even just the freeware version of SAS is really potent, other than it not having real-time protection and scheduling.

    Augment that with the freeware version of MB, using both to do weekly or twice monthly whole system manual scans (plus your regular anti-virus software, of course) and you’ll REALLY have yourself some serious protection.

    If you download SuperAntiSpyware from its maker’s website, trust me, it’s safe. Fear not. I’ve been using it for years. It’s well-known and highly-regarded. It’s not one of those fake anti-spyware tools that are actually spyware, themselves…

    …and, in fact, any tool that flags SuperAntiSpyware as unsafe is probably one of the fake anti-spyware tools; and the reason a fake anti-spyware product would likely flag SuperAntiSpyware is precisely because SuperAntiSpyware is going to flag it; and so it’s in the best interests of the fake anti-spyware product to keep SuperAntiSpyware off your computer.

    I’m serious… I’ve got pushing 40 years as an IT pro, and I would stake my reputation on SuperAntiSpyware… and Malware Bytes, too. (See my other posting, here, which includes Malware Bytes info)

    As I open my Internet web browser it by defaults displays unwanted pop-up ads on my browser and redirects to unknown webpages.

    As my system security cannot find and detect any issues related to this so I have no idea how to overcome from such problems. I got very much irritates from this problems and try to find solutions how to get rid out of this problems in which I visit the sites and easily find the way how to resolve it. If you are also facing such types of problems then you can also visit this link.
