My Overall Score: 51.5/60

85.8 % = A

My Final Verdict: SUPERAntiSpyware is extremely effective even in it’s freeware version package. You are not choked to death with too many stupid software limitations. Like so so many other freeware programs out there now. You can still update SUPERAntiSpyware and you can still use its 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. (For most people this is not even a very big deal. Because we already do it anyways with our other freeware programs such as Spybot and Malwarebytes)
