EPD 289: Fan Mail Friday’s (02/12/2016)

Dear Remy,

I have been wondering for the longest time. “Where did you guys find all the survey sites you guys review on your site ?”

“Where did you guys find all the survey sites you guys review on your site ?”

—————————-

Remy’s Reply: Actually a rather good question. I honestly can’t remember. It’s been like 10 years at least now, that I have been doing surveys online. I’m sure a Google search would work. I’m sure there is a survey directory or even check wiki.

**Maybe one of you guys can give this guy an answer. To the above question.

V. 7.5 D“SAS” Professional Review Template

————————–

Price: $29.95 USD/CAD For A 1 year Subscription For Up To 3 PC’s.

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 SUPERAntiSpyware3.5Average – 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 4.5Great – Very useful and its always great when you can add an extra layer protection to your PC.

DD. Browser Hi-Jack And Registry Protection4.0Great – Great. But there is still no protection for ether Mozilla Firefox or Chrome.

DDD. System Repair Option4.0Great – 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 XP5.0Excellent

E2. Windows Vista5.0Excellent

E3. Windows 7 5.0Excellent

E4. Windows 85.0Excellent

————————–

F. Speed of Scan4.5Great – 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 Boost5.0Excellent– 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 5.0Excellent– With 5 different types of scans to suite your fancy. You can’t go wrong regardless of your final choice of scan.

G.Update Manager5.0 Excellent – Works like a charm with no lag at all.

H. Scan Logs – 4.0Great– 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 Support 3.0Average – You have their “Free, unlimited 24/7 technical support via e-mail”,  “Customer Support Request Form” or “User Forums

**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.

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 freeware 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.)

What is a “Dashboard” ?

February 9, 2016

Dashboard (also called dash, instrument panel, or fascia) – A control panel placed in front of the driver of an automobile, housing instrumentation and controls for operation of the vehicle.

The word originally applied to a barrier of wood or leather fixed at the front of a horse-drawn carriage or sleigh to protect the driver from mud or other debris “dashed up” (thrown up) by the horses’ hooves.

Vindale Research- Survey Site Review (February 2016)

February 8, 2016

Name: Vindale Research

Link: http://www.vindale.com/v/index.jsp

Who Is Eligible To Participate: US, Canadian, Australia and United Kingdom Residence Only

Type of Award Or Payment: Cheque or Paypal payment options

Points Or Cash Normally Earned Per Survey: 0.5 cents  – $20.00 USD

Sign-Up Time: Very Short

How Many Survey Invitations Should You Expect Per Week: 1 – 50

How Long Does It Take To Collect A Reward Or Cash Out: With such low cash threshold per-survey. It will be a long time till you’ll reach the needed $50 cash out level.

Do They Spam You: Yes, expect a lot of junk mail invites in your junk bin.

Overall Rating: 2.5 out of 5 – With plenty of surveys to complete and with and a of $50 cash out level. You’ll be more frustrated then happy that you joined this survey site. Also important to note is by the time you have completed your sign up and your profile. You’ll have earned yourself a few bucks along the way. But with so few high paying surveys you’ll be waiting sometime to get your $50 USD needed to cash out.
