Spyware Stop

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

Spyware-Stop uses false positives. We have tested the program on absolutely clean computer that was never infected with spyware, adware, trojans or any other parasites. However, the applicatio managed to find 12 malicious objects related to the following threats: Trojan VX Downloader, Wild Trojan 2, PSGuard. See a screenshot provided below.

The program refuses to remove any parasites it finds and asks to purchase the full version. However, its vendor calls free version a trial that never expires, but is limited only to a threat scan. As you know, the real trial includes full functionality, but works only limited period of time. Free version of Spyware-Stop is definitely not a trial. See another screenshot below.

Spyware-Stop continuously displays fake warning messages. Even if the program didn’t find anything during last system scan, it still warns the user that his or her “computer is infected with Spyware”, etc. See another screenshot.

The application uses an outdated spyware definitions database. The latest update is dated August 30, 2005.

Spyware-Stop is a clone of SpySheriff, SpywareNo! and SpyDemolisher. All these programs have the same interface, produce similar scan results and consist of almost identical components.

The official web site of Spyware-Stop is www.spyware-stop.com.

Avoid this product! It is useless.
