Break Spyware is a corrupt anti-spyware program that uses false positives as goad to purchase. It’s not only a poor performance product, but also a clone of numerous corrupt applications.
We have carefully tested the program on absolutely clean computer that was never infected with any viruses, spyware or other malicious threats. Nevertheless, Break Spyware managed to identify 6 infected files. Further analysis revealed that neither of detected objects was actually malicious.
For instance, files td.exe, tlink.exe and arj.exe were essential parts of ALAB, Assembler IDE. That’s an old program, but definitely not harmful. Other files identified – pdfl70.dll and ssupdate.exe were associated with Adobe Illustrator and SUPERAntiSpyware, popular and fully legitimate software.
Break Spyware also detects suspicious software. Not surprisingly, this detection is also inaccurate. For instance, the spyware remover says that Java, Adobe Gamma, avast! antivirus, Comodo Firewall and Windows Defender are suspicious programs. Take a look on the screenshot provided below.
The application’s free version refuses to remove any parasites it finds. It asks to register and purchase the full product.
The program is a clone of ADWare Bazooka, Adware Punisher, Hit Virus, Remedy Antispy, SpyCut, Spy iBlock, SpywareDisinfector, SystemStable and The Spy Guard. All these applications have resembling interfaces and consist from terribly similar components.
