Spy Sniper review

by Jake Doevan - - | Type: Corrupt Anti-Spyware

Spy Sniper produces ridiculous false positives. The program was tested on absolutely clean uninfected computer, but it still managed to find one malicious process. The analysis showed that this process actually was explorer.exe, which is the Windows default shell and one of the most important system components (this task is responsible for running the desktop, Windows Explorer, etc.). Spy Sniper not only recognized it as a parasite, but also terminated it during the removal procedure. See a screenshot provided below.

The application showed quite poor performance. We used Spy Sniper to check five test computers. On two of them upon the very first launch the program displayed a message saying that “Trial Over”, “Please Register” and thereby refused to load at all. It must be noticed that Spy Sniper was never installed to our test machines and therefore its trial version could not expire. Apparently, the application is based on another anti-spyware product and employs exactly the same technique to determine how long it was used before. The program can also be a derivative or clone of some less-known products. On our other computers Spy Sniper loaded correctly and scanned the system. However, on a PC running Windows 98 OS, system scan took more than one hour.

The vendor doesn’t provide any user manuals or help files. We couldn’t find the official list of Spy Sniper minimal system requirements. Furthermore, on a computer running Windows 98 OS we had to manually install additional libraries and runtime components that Spy Sniper requires to work properly. The program’s package doesn’t contain any of them.

The program’s official web site is www.pimasoft.com.

Spy Sniper deceives the user and cannot protect your privacy and security. Following its instructions often may damage the entire system, but not eliminate spyware parasites. We DO NOT recommend purchasing and using this program.
