RazeSpyware does not produce false positives and finds well-known and widely spread spyware and adware parasites. Nevertheless, we cannot recommend purchasing or using this product.
The application uses ineffective scan engine. Full system scan does not take more than 20 seconds. Apparently RazeSpyware doesn’t check all the files, registry entries and running processes, but searches only for known threats, which signatures are included into the program’s spyware definitions database.
Free version is severely limited. All the real-time monitoring tools it has are disabled and cannot be turned on. Furthermore, the program cannot be updated, as the update function is available only in the paid version.
RazeSpyware refuses to remove any malicious objects it finds and asks to register and purchase full product.
A month ago the application was promoted through fake web sites such as www.security2k.net, which were the illegitimate clones of Windows Security Center. Today RazeSpyware is advertised by malicious adware threats and harmful parasites such as the Secup trojan or the Desktophijack virus and their numerous variants. Furthermore, reputable security tools such as Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta detect RazeSpyware as a high risk unsolicited software. See a screenshot provided below.
Although we are not sure who actually is responsible for described program distribution methods, we surmise that the application’s vendor or its affiliates are trying to advertise and sell the product that way.
Domains associated with RazeSpyware are razespyware.com, razespyware.net and spywaredollars.com.
