image SUPERAntiSpyware is one of the security products that you may have seen me writing about.  In brief, this product is capable of the following:

  • Detect and Remove Spyware, Adware and Remove Malware, Trojans, Dialers, Worms, KeyLoggers, HiJackers, Parasites, Rootkits, Rogue Security Products and many other types of threats.
  • Light on System Resources and won’t slow down your computer like many other anti-spyware products. Won’t conflict with your existing anti-spyware or anti-virus solution!

  1. Rick, glad you mentioned that you can use this anti-spyware tool with the security tools you may already have installed. It’s also interesting that the analyzing service uses a variety of spyware products to check suspicious files. I think the everyday user might not realize how helpful an analyzing service can be, but do you know how long it takes for them to provide detailed analysis after you submit a file?


    1. TuneUp,

      I know from my past experience of using the online analyzing services, it all depends on the file size, your broadband connection, etc… Irregardless, the wait can be worth it, especially when you suspect that a file may be a malware carrier.

      Thanks for commenting and putting some thought into the online file analysis process.
