Corrupt AntiSpyware category contains the list of corrupt, rogue, fake, illegal, even harmful anti-spyware tools that cannot correctly detect and remove spyware or other parasites and therefore are totally ineffective and should NOT be purchased and used. Listed programs have been carefully tested by the 2-spyware.com research center and did not pass most of our tests. These so-called spyware removers are driven by SPAM or deceptive advertising, are illegitimate clones of each other, use incorrect pest detection techniques, produce false positives finding malicious programs even in completely clean systems or do not work properly at all. Neither of corrupt anti-spyware tools can effectively fight against parasites, as most of them are made only to trick users in order to make money from them. 

Each spyware remover in the category comes with a review describing its negative sides and the reason why it was added to the corrupt anti-spyware list. Published reviews also include program screenshots, highlighting its questionable behavior, produced false positives, made detection and removal mistakes, etc. We rate tested programs by giving them marks from 1 to 100. The lower mark a spyware remover gets the less effective it is. Please carefully read each review, pay attention to the rating mark a program got and read comments published by other visitors. This will help you to make a wise choice and learn more about your currently used anti-spyware program.

In the list of questionable tools we add potentially corrupt anti-spyware programs that were not tested by the 2-spyware.com research center due several reasons. Most of listed products are discontinued, others do not have any free, demonstration or trial versions. Nevertheless, all the entries definitely are rogue, ineffective and even harmful. Reviews are based on information provided by reliable sources such as SpywareWarrior, Sunbelt Software, Eric L. Howes, Patrick M. Kolla and others.

If you need a legitimate and effective spyware remover, please visit the anti-spyware category, which contains the list of all known legitimate anti-spyware programs able to effectively detect and remove spyware or other parasites. Drop us a note if you have found the program which deserves to be listed in the list of corrupt anti-spyware tools.
