SUPERAntiSpyware review

SUPERAntiSpyware is a powerful, highly effective spyware remover introducing advanced parasite detection and removal features along with reliable real-time protection. The program is not very popular, but our tests show that SUPERAntiSpyware is definitely one of the best products available today.

During our tests, SUPERAntiSpyware managed to correctly identify and eliminate all the parasites that we installed on our test systems. The spyware remover found all the files, processes and registry keys of different threats including not just well-known spyware and adware risks, but also widely spread pests and new, emerging parasites.

The application thoroughly checks the Windows registry, running processes, web browser cookies and the entire file system. It can also scan removable media, System Restore folder and essential system components. The program uses extensive spyware definitions database updated on a regular basis.

SUPERAntiSpyware offers three scan modes: Quick Scan, Complete Scan and Custom Scan. The first one is the fastest, but yet highly effective. It enables the program to search for known malware and scan the most common places for parasites to be installed. Although this mode is called "quick", it still requires a lot of time to complete - on our test machines Quick Scan takes up to 15-18 minutes. Complete Scan requires a little bit more time (usually, up to 20 minutes). However, it allows the program to scan every file in the file system, not only known parasite objects and their common locations. Custom Scan allows the user to manually select which system components to check. The user can choose separate folders, disable scans of memory, registry or startup locations. Custom Scan is the most flexible, but still very effective. SUPERAntiSpyware is able to scan removable drives.

Scan reports are informative. The user is presented with parasite name, type, exact location of its objects and its short description (online).

The program implements reliable real-time protection, which terminates running malicious processes and stops different kinds of parasites from being installed. SUPERAntiSpyware also provides hijack protection, which protects essential web browser settings and prevents malware from hijacking the web browser.

The application comes with useful additional utilities called System and Browser Repairs. These tiny tools allow to repair specific system and web browser components or functions that have been disabled by parasites. For instance, the user can enable the Task Manager, repair broken network connection, reset desktop wallpaper, restore hijacked home page and other browser settings, etc.

The program's interface is modular and user-friendly enough. However, it is not convenient or very easy to use. The vendor should redesign the look of the program in order to make it more attractive and intuitive.

The fully functional trial version expires after 30 days. There is also a free version, which lacks some useful functions of the Professional edition. For instance, the free edition does not provide real-time and hijack protection. SUPERAntiSpyware Professional also includes Schedule feature. It allows setting any type of scan to examine a computer regularly. SUPERAntiSpyware Professional downloads the latest updates autmatically, while users of free version have to update software manually.

SUPERAntiSpyware 4.0 offers better scanning and detection techniques. It doesn’t take much of system resources; the new version 4.0 is even 50% faster than its forerunner. SUPERAntiSpyware is compatible with the most majority of competitive security tools.

Comments on SUPERAntiSpyware

I didnt find this software helpful. Worse, I have been unable to completely remove it from my computer, despite multiple attempts and different methods. Honestly, I wouldnt recommend it to anyone. I find it hard to believe, honestly, that the reviews above are from real people - thats how bad it was for me. (Apologies to any and all real people whove had a good experience with it)
I absolutely agree with you Trina and Doc... This software appears great on the surface but just try to disable it or uninstall it! I still cant get rid of the Root Legacy registry items or uninstall the Non-Plug and Play drivers. It just sits in my machine mocking me and no doubt doing something evil behind my back.

DO NOT INSTALL THE FREE VERSION PEOPLE!! As they say, nothing is free :)

Id really like to think the paid version doesnt have this problem, but I wouldnt count on it.
one of the best a must have been using for 3to4 years and it keeps getting better .
I have used the free version for years. It is now time for me to purchase this. I just fixed 3 home PCs that got the fake "computer fix it all if you purchase us" malware. Time and time again this has fixed my PC internet connection problems. It works well with MS security essentials and malware bytes. In the end this is THE malwarevirus protection. After 7 years using it I am now going to buy it. This company deserves my money to support a great product. Nough said....
4.0 is an obsolete version of SANTISW.

Good software works well. Use as an on demand scanner with Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro.
I bought into the hype and installed SuperANTISpyware - worked pretty well till I decided that it really didnt do much more than SpywareBlaster and Spybot Search and Destroy, so I decided to uninstall it. That was when it started to scream - MALWARE. It wouldnt uninstall - neither its uninstaller, nor Windows. I had to use msconfig to keep it from starting, then remove every instance of it by hand from the Registry then run multiple clean-up to get rid of it.
Stay away from this POS!!!!!
I used SAS Professional 4.5 and thought it was clunky.

I am using SAS Professional 5.0 Beta. I love it. A lot easier on memory. Scans a lot faster. Added a Critical Point scan. Cans set up multiple scheduled scans. Updates virus definitions as often as three times a day.

Huge improvement over 4.x and has a better interface on top of all the technical improvements. I use it along with Avast AIS and Windows Defender on two Windows 7 SP1 X64 computers and a Windows 7 SP1 x32 computer.

Works great. Wealth worth the money for the Pro version
this app has helped me so much . some one installed a spy on my PC but this spy remover helped me and removed it .
