CyberDefender AntiSpyware 2006 review

by Gabriel E. Hall - - | Type: Corrupt Anti-Spyware

CyberDefender AntiSpyware 2006 produces false positives. We have tested this program on uninfected machine that was never obsessed with spyware, viruses or any other parasites. However, the tested spyware remover managed to detect 30 spyware items (using the Full Scan mode) and 16 spyware items during the Quick Scan. In the first case malicious object were related to 8 different parasites, while in the latter case items were associated with only 4 pests.

Further analysis revealed that none of detected items are actually related to any kind of malware. Furthermore, some found parasites actually are not even parasites at all. For instance, neither C-Dilla software protection tool or Engima SpyHunter anti-spyware are real threats. In our case C-Dilla was installed and used by Autodesk Inventor 6, professional drawing and graphics software. Removing C-Dilla would corrupt this program. Other “malicious” objects that CyberDefender AntiSpyware 2006 found were actually related to the following programs: the WinRAR archiver (the rar.exe file, identified as Perfect Keylogger), Creative sound card drivers (stprov.ini, identified as FreshBar), K-Lite Codec Pack (lame.exe, identified as HideExec), simple self-made C++/OpenGL application (6.exe, identified as shopathomeselect), Adobe Photoshop CS (several registry keys describing the .sta file extension, identified as istbar). See screenshots provided below.

The Full Scan mode is too slow. Several regular modern computers were fully checked in a little more than one hour. An effecive anti-spyware program should scan the system much faster. Quick Scan is also not too quick. It usually takes about 5 minutes to complete.

CyberDefender AntiSpyware 2006 is made by the same company, as SpyBlocs, which is a corrupt spyware remover producing false positives. Both programs have very similar interfaces, although the vendor claims to have implemented new technologies in CyberDefender AntiSpyware 2006.

Domains associated with the product are cyberdefender.com and cyber-defender.com.

We DO NOT recommend purchasing and using this program!
