TheSpywareKiller review

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

We have tested free version of TheSpywareKiller on clean computer. Full system scan was performed. The application has found 4 folders related to Xupiter adware. However, all detected directories were associated with the standard component of Microsoft Windows XP operating system called OOBE (“Out of the Box Experience”), which is a special tool designed to run after OS setup and perform significant actions. OOBE registers and activates software, displays tutorials, creates users accounts, etc. This fully legitimate component cannot harm the system and has nothing in common with Xupiter adware. Screenshot provided below is a clear evidence that TheSpywareKiller uses false positives.

The program shows deceptive detection reports on each startup. These reports say that the system is infected with spyware and adware, although it isn’t. See another screenshot.

Free version refuses to remove any objects it found and asks to purchase full product. It doesn’t have any update function and uses outdated spyware definitions database, released in December, 2003. Note that we have tested the most recent version of TheSpywareKiller in April, 2005. See screenshot below.

TheSpywareKiller is a clone of The Adware Hunter, SpywareKilla, SpyBan, Protect Your Identity and other corrupt antispyware programs. These applications use the same spyware definitions database files and have very similar interfaces.

Domains associated with TheSpywareKiller are thespywarekiller.com and inicom.dk.

We DO NOT recommend this product.
