Is SUPERAntiSpyware Pro Worth The Price ?: Yes it is. If you want the full protection with the added benefits of Automatic Updating, Scheduling Scanning and Real-Time Protection. Then you will be more then happy with the $29.95 USD/CAD price point.
A. Installation SUPERAntiSpyware – 5.0 “Excellent” – Fast, Safe and Simple
B. Un-installing SUPERAntiSpyware – 3.5 “Average“ – No start menu un-install feature. But you can un-install using the Windows control panel.
C. Stability Of Program – 5.0 “Excellent” – Absolutely no stability issues.
D. Residential Shield Test - 4.5 “Great“ – Very useful and its always great when you can add an extra layer protection to your PC.
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.
E. Detection Rate Test:
E1. Windows XP – 5.0 “Excellent“
E2. Windows Vista – 5.0 “Excellent“
E3. Windows 7 - 5.0 “Excellent“
E4. Windows 8 – 5.0 “Excellent“
F. Speed of Scan – 4.5 “Great“ – Just as Danny talked about in the freeware version review of SUPERAntiSpyware. It seems instead of decreasing overall scan times. They have actually in some cases increase 10 to 20 minutes overall. But just like Danny said “We will keep a close eye on the next version to see if this is a new trend.” Or just a blip on an otherwise positive trending direction.
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 – 4.0 “Great” - 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: 72.5/80
90.6 % = 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 am very happy to to report a dramatic decease in overall scan times. Also important to note is that SUPERAntiSpyware is now sporting a brand spanking new User Interface (UI). Along with overall scanning and detection improvements. Not to mention some unseen and unappreciated under the hood improvements to top it all off.
