Free version of X-Spyware was tested on clean system. The application doesn’t use false positives and is able to detect malicious programs. However, we still DO NOT recommend it.
X-Spyware is a knockoff of reputable Ad-Aware antispyware. It also is a variant of other similar products, such as SpyVest, Spyware Stormer, Spyware Slayer and others. It uses slightly modified spyware definitions database, has very similar look and functions.
The program uses quite outdated spyware definitions database, released in December, 2004. X-Spyware is unstable. Numerous attempts to update the application have been made, all were unsuccessful. Apparently update function is broken. Live Update terminates the program with an error message. See screenshot below.
The official domain is x-spyware.com.
