DD. Browser Hi-Jack And Registry Protection – 4.0 “Great“ – Great. But there is still no protection for ether Mozilla Firefox or Chrome.
DDD. System Repair Option – 4.0 “Great“ – Used it and it works like a charm. Thou you still should read the descriptions over a few times. Before you decide to use one of the many repair options SUPERAntiSpyware Pro has.

F. Speed of Scan – 4.5 “Great“ – Scan times have been reduced by just under 50%. So what use to take me anywhere from 35 to 45 mins to perform a scan. Now clocks in at just over 20 to 35 mins.
FF. Scan Boost – 5.0 “Excellent” - This option seems to have remained. 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 option.
FFF. Types Of Different Scans Available - 5.0 ” Excellent” - With 5 different types of scans to suite your fancy. You can’t go wrong regardless of your final choice of scan.
G.Update Manager – 5.0 ” Excellent“ – Works like a charm with no lag at all.
H. Scan Logs – 3.5 “Average” - The logs could be quite a bit easier to read. But they are in the same league as most programs in this category.
**Yes, people I agree it is SUPER lame that SUPERAntiSpyware Pro. The paid version of SUPERAntiSpyware has no phone support or live chat support.
My Overall Score: 72/80
90 % = A +
My Overall Outlook: SUPERAntiSpyware remains a very easy and safe program to use. SUPERAntiSpyware is truly your one stop shop for Spyware, Adware, Malware and Internet Cookie detection and removal.
My Final Verdict: I have to admit at first glance that SUPERAntiSpyware’s major overhaul and update had me wondering if this (5.6.1020) build was what I have been waiting for for a really long time. But in this case SUPERAntiSpyware (5.6.1020) update is nothing but a quick tweak. There really is nothing of note to be said of this very minor update to a program that is not only showing it’s age. But could use a few nice tweaks updates.
Such as the long overdue Browser Hi-Jack Protection for other Internet browsers such as Firefox would be very much appreciated. Also an update to the overly bland UI (User Interface).
