This program claims that it can remove key loggers, hijackers, remote control
programs and adware. Basically this program claims that it can remove all spyware
and adware programs better than the others because it identifies the characteristics
of spyware instead of just its properties.
Naturally this claim sounds wonderful to the ear, but let me tell you that
you have to run it before you can chose to believe it. The detection process is
relatively out of date and it does not seem to do what it says. It does not fully
acknowledge the characteristics of spyware and adware as there were still some
of these pesky problems that another program detected.
It does have a relatively easy interface and isn't particularly hard
to learn for the beginner. This program does not get rid of cookies and tracking
programs or data mining software.
This program does not let you manually decide which programs to get rid of,
but it does come with an uninstaller. This program is free to try and costs $29.99
to buy. What is sad is that you have to run another spyware removal program to
completely get rid of unwanted programs and spyware.
The program is by Aluria. In it's advertisements it claims that it is
the most commonly used program in the world, and it hosts privacy protection as
well. On its best day, this program just doesn't measure up to the popular
free programs on the market today.
All in all, I would have to say that this program is fair but not worth spending
the money especially since free programs offer the same or more protection for
free. It just doesn't measure up to the competition.
