    "One of the best tools to protect your PC"

    June 28, 2010  |   By alexrounds

    Version: Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.6.2

    Pros

    Spybot helps clear out the malware that clogs up the computer. It has a useful interface, intelligent protections, and is overall pretty darn near indispensible.

    Cons

    Doesn't play well with other malware protection software (warns about Ad-aware.)

    Summary

    I use multiple protections; ad-aware, spybot, Avast! and a few others. This is a quality program that has not failed, nor crashed my computer! Highly recommended (I do recommend to my clients.)

    "Totally slows down startup process"

    June 24, 2010  |   By jirachi99

    Version: Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.6.2

    Pros

    Great spyware protection and immunization and gets rid of unwanted programs

    Cons

    Start up process totally wreaks out, take a lot of time opening folders especially internet browser

    Summary

    If you want to be "protected," like this product and install it, but if you don't want this to slow you down, better stay away from this

    "excelllent program"

    June 21, 2010  |   By ukrrus

    Version: Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.6.2

    Pros

    the information package is excellent in advising on malicious prgrams and also "scams" also helped my clear Torjans in "system 32" files that AVG and Malware (purchased versions) could detect but not remove

    Cons

    nothing reallty, agreeably slow, but worth it for its efficiency

    Summary

    Spy Bot S&D managed to achieve what AVG and Malaware Remover could not, plus showed up the new Trojan Guarder program for what it really is ....a questionable benefit ..scam?

    "This is a great tool"

    June 20, 2010  |   By imcphee

    Version: Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.6.2

    Pros

    It does what it says!

    Cons

    Automated scans seem to be missing?

    Summary

    Threats to a computer's well-being are constantly there. This is a comprehensive approach to dealing with the problem and, for the skeptics, it is free! The enterprise though should be supported if it works for you!

    "Excellent, effective and free!!!"

    June 18, 2010  |   By Blade10X

    Version: Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.6.2

    Pros

    Spybot has fair detection. So wonder that scanning is fast and precise. Immunization is one of most important option in programs that type. Good lookin' interface. Extremely large configuration and full of options.

    Cons

    it takes slow to start. Updates should be more often.

    Summary

    Spybot - Search & Destroy is not 100% Anti-Spyware product, correctly he's a excellent add-on to your main Anti-Virus Software, especially if you take a look on immunization. It is a very good combination with your Anti.Virus.

    Version: Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.6.2

    Pros

    program does an excellent job. Easy updates. The Immunization service is SPECTACULAR. oNCE IMMUNIZED ONLY very RARELY DOES MALWARE GET IN. tHIS FaCT ALONE GIVES FANTASTIC SELF-CONFIDENCE WHILE SURFING THE NET. FREE, FREE,FREE

    Cons

    Very rarely updates stale (they are fixed almost immediately. Over the last 4 years i HAVe received just a couple of false positives. Just keep your eyes open and this product does a great job.

    Summary

    fantastic Program P.S. I use TeaTimer to protect on the net but do NOT allow program to rESIDENT CONTROL MY internal System Settings (You are given these choices upon setup)
