E2. Windows Vista5.0Excellent

E3. Windows 7 - 5.0Excellent

E4. Windows 85.0Excellent

————————–

F. Speed of Scan4.5Great – It might just be me. But it seems scan times have gone down in this latest version of SUPERAntiSpyware.

FF. Scan Boost5.0Excellent- This option seems to have vastly improved (yet again). So much so even my dual core computers have show at least a 10 to 20 mins differences between using regular or “Low Boost” as oppose to “High Boost” scanning options.

FFF. Types Of Different Scans Available - 5.0Excellent- With 5 different types of scans to suite your fancy. SuperAntiSpyware has all the different types of scans you’ll need. For any job you want to tackle.

G.Update Manager4.5Great – Needs to be updated manually. But works like a charm with no lag at all. As SUPERAntiSpyware has implemented smaller definition updates. There are also a lot more definitions updates available to be manually updated.  Which is great to see.

H. Scan Logs3.5 Average” – The logs could be quite a bit easier to read. But they are in the same league as most programs in this category.

I. SUPERAntiSpyware Support3.5Average – You have their “Customer Support Request Form” or “User Forum” options.

————————–

My Overall Score: 59.5/65

91.5 % = A +

————————–

My Overall Outlook: SUPERAntiSpyware still remains an extremely effective anti-spyware / malware program. (Even in it’s free version package.) You are not choked to death with excessive over the top software limitations, like so many other freeware programs out there. You are still required to update SUPERAntiSpyware manually and you can still use SUPERAntiSpywares 5 different scanning options (minus of course the scan scheduler option).

The only 2 very minor downsides that I can see, are that you have to manually scan and manually update SuperAntiSpyware yourself. (But for most people that is not even a very big deal. Because we already do it anyways with so many other free programs such as Spybot and Malwarebytes.)

————————–

My Final Verdict: I am very happy to say I found quite a few improvements including a whole new User Interface (UI). Backed up with many improvements in scanning, updating and the (SAS) scan logs. Altogether pretty much a well thought out new package for this 6.0 new SUPERAntiSpyware build. All said and done a very good job from the SUPERAntiSpyware team.

What does “ISO” mean ?

October 21, 2014

ISO – An ISO image is an archive file of an optical disc, a type of disk image composed of the data contents of every written sector  of an optical disc, including the optical disc file system.  ISO image files usually have a file extension of .iso. The name ISO is taken from the ISO 9660  file system used with CD-ROM media, but what is known as an ISO image might also contain a UDF (ISO/IEC 13346) file system (commonly used by DVDs  and Blu-ray Discs).

Twitter (5.30.1) – Android App Review

October 18, 2014

Twitter (5.30.1)

Cost Of App: Free (Google Play App Store)

Is there a paid upgrade option ?: No

App Description: (See Below)

Twitter is a free app that lets you connect with people, express yourself, and discover more about all the things you love.

• Get breaking news. Stay informed with the local and global news that matters to you most, as it happens.

• Go behind the scenes at exclusive events like the Oscars, the Emmys, the MTV VMA’s and the World Cup.

• Express yourself with text, photos, emoji, emoticons, video, GIFs and Vines.

• Use hashtags (like #NFL) to find more Tweets about topics you love.

• Get closer to people who interest you, including celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Harry Styles and Rihanna.

• Share Tweets with apps like Facebook, Whatsapp, Kik, LINE, email and SMS.

• Tweet links from sites like YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, Spotify and Pandora.

Are there in App ads ?: No

A. Ease Of Use: 4/5 – Super easy to use and set up. But (GUI) Graphical User Interface could use some tweaking. As it is overwhelming at times. A larger screen would help but not by much.

B. Security: No impact to smart phone or tablet security

C. Usefulness: 5/5 – Extremely useful and very easy to use. It has many useful features. All be it sometimes very hard to find all your options.

D. Smart phone Slowdown: Depends on the Smart phone. But I noticed that there can be some serious lag.

E. Tablet Slow Down: No lag, that I noticed.

F. Type Of User I Would Recommend To Use This App: I would recommend this app to anyone who wants to stay connected remotely to Twitter. This gets a MEGA recommend if you are the type of person not using their Desktop or Laptop as much anymore. Just make sure you lock up you tablet or Smart Phone with a good strong password.

Are there in App ads ?: Yes there are. But not only that there UPGRADE reminders pretty much everyday. sms Blocker is the worst offender thus far. When it comes to in app ads and upgrade nag notices.

A. Ease Of Use: 5/5 – Very easy once an SMS message comes in you can decide to “allow it” or “block it”. After that you should expect the blocked ones to be blocked and locked up in the programs logs and the ones you allow. You can just go on about your business and text away. Without worrying that your gonna get a “adult content text” or one of those random “you have just won 1,000,000 million dollars” or “that you have been randomly selected to receive a free Mac Book pro”.  You can also block non-ads like your x-best friend or x girl or boyfriend.

B. Security: This app can save you from getting sent infected links that install malware on your smart phone. Malware which is often fatal to your phone and your private data.

C. Usefulness: 4.5/5 – A huge annoyance at times but overall the usefulness and the free nature of this app wins out. No matter how much I rant on about its over abundance of ads.

Very Important Side Note: You will still need to empty your blocked SMS logs every once and awhile. As the free version of sms Blocker will not do that for you. And trust me it can get out of hand. I had nearly 300 blocked text messages in less then a month and a half.

D. Smart phone Slowdown: No lag at all that I noticed.

E. Type Of User I Would Recommend To Use This App: Anybody who enjoys not be bothered with “SMS ads” or the sheer annoyances of people you don’t want to be receiving texts from.
