SpyOnThis is a corrupt anti-spyware program that uses false positives. We have tested this spyware remover on absolutely clean computer that was never infected with spyware, trojans, viruses or any other malicious parasites. However, SpyOnThis managed to detect 12 malware components related to 8 different parasites.
Further analysis revealed that absolutely all detected objects were actually associated with fully legitimate popular software installed to the test system. For instance, SpyOnThis identifies files related to Gaim, a popular instant messenger, and the GTK toolkit as the SaveKeysUndetectable spyware. The program detects FileZilla, a harmless FTP client as the UrlBlaze parasite; eMule, a popular peer-to-peer client – as the BearShare threat. Furthermore, SpyOnThis associates registry entries of pcDefense, a legitimate security suite with the PC Remote Control spyware. Other harmless, safe objects related to Creative sound card drivers, the Windows operating system and Adobe Photoshop were also identified as parasite components. This clearly shows that SpyOnThis cannot be trusted. Take a look on one of the screenshots provided below.
The free version refuses to remove any parasites it finds and asks to register and purchase the full product. SpyOnThis Monitor, the real-time protection tool installed alongside the spyware remover, does not work in the free version.
Domains associated with SpyOnThis are spyonthis.net and hijack-this.net. The latter exploits the name of HijackThis, a popular spyware removal tool.
We DO NOT recommend purchasing SpyOnThis. This program may corrupt your system and damage legitimate software installed.
