Spyware Snooper review

by Jake Doevan - - | Type: Corrupt Anti-Spyware

Spyware Snooper is prone to produce false positives. The application was tested on clean uninfected computer. Full system scan was performed. Spyware Snooper checked the entire file system, running processes, Windows registry and web browser cookies. It detected 2 malicious registry entries related to the BearShare spyware and Twain-Tech adware parasites. Both of them were classified as extreme risks. Analysis showed that HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{000020DD-C72E-4113-AF77-DD56626C6C42} entry was actually created by legitimate SpywareBlaster application to prevent the installation of unsolicited harmful programs and therefore couldn’t pose any threat. Another registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\ed2k was related to popular harmless file sharing program eMule. The BearShare peer-to-peer application was never installed to our test system. See a screenshot provided below.

Spyware Snooper uses an outdated spyware definitions database released in September, 2004. Please notice that we tested the program in October, 2005. Spyware Snooper includes an update function that unfortunately does not seem to be working properly. Once the user clicks on the Update button, the program opens a window displaying the update progress and after several seconds reports that a computer is not connected to the Internet. It is definitely not true, as our test PC has fully functional Internet connection. Furthermore, Spyware Snooper does not even try to contact its update servers. Our firewall program did not detected any SpywareSnooper attempts to access a remote host. See another screenshot.

Free version refuses to remove any malware it finds. It asks to register and purchase the full product.

Official domains associated with Spyware Snooper are spywaresnooper.com and maximumsoftware.com.

We DO NOT recommend this program.
