MySpyProtector is a corrupt anti-spyware program that uses false positives as goad to purchase. This poor performance product is absolutely ineffective against widely spread spyware parasites as well as viral threats or any other malware.
We have carefully tested this program on absolutely clean computer that was never compromised by any privacy or security risks. However, MySpyProtector managed to identify 341 purportedly malicious registry keys.
Further analysis revealed that the larger part of detected keys were actually special ActiveX killbits added to the registry by legitimate spyware removers. Such killbits are used to block drive-by installs and prevent malware from infiltrating into the system. Other keys found were associated with Creative sound card drivers. They did not pose any harm as well. Moreover, removing them would affect sound settings. See a screenshot provided below.
We have also used MySpyProtector to scan a badly infected machine in order to find out whether the program is able to identify and remove real parasites. Results are terrible! The application missed absolutely all malicious pests pre-installed to the system, except for remnants of one single toolbar. Relatively harmless web browser cookies and a very few registry keys were the only objects found.
MySpyProtector is not only corrupt. It’s also of very poor quality. The application shows excessively high processor usage that result in constant system slowdowns. The system is almost unusable during full system scan, which usually lasts more than half-an-hour.
The program refuses to remove any parasites it finds and asks to register and purchase the full version. Free updates of spyware definitions database are also not available.
It must be noted that some adware can be bundled with MySpyProtector. Currently, the program does not install any parasites during the setup. However, according to the license agreement, MySpyProtector can install a third-party advertising-supported application called Top Text iLookup. You cannot use the application if you don’t agree to adware setup. Evidence is below.
