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.

————————–

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.

————————–

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.)

ImTranslator (8.36) – Mozilla FireFox Add-on Review

February 6, 2016

ImTranslator (8.36)

A. Ease Of Use: 4/5 – A very easy and straight forward add-on, but there are still some settings that can get a bit tedious to newer Firefox users.

B. Security: Not Applicable To This Add-on

C. Usefulness: 4/5 – Both my life as a member of the (CSW) team and my life on the net would be a lot harder without this add-on. If you ever wondered how to say something in another language, or even if you just ran into a site and or blog that is not in your own native tongue / language.

D. FireFox Slowdown: At times this add-on can really slow down your browser.

E. Computer Slow Down: PC slowdown can occur on the very rare occasion. Often it will occur when you leave this add-on by accident with in your FireFox browser Window, or if you have been in a FireFox session for quite a while. And then you decide you want to translate a large swath of text.

F. Type Of User I Would Recommend To Use This Add-on: Any level of Firefox user could benefit from this add-on.

Very Important Firefox Add-on Compatibility Note: The add-on NoScript (NoScript Review Link) will cause this add-on to crash or not work at all. You will need to add  imtranslator.net to your NoScript White list, which can be found in your Firefox add-ons. Go to the NoScript add-on. Highlight it, then go to options. Go to second tab called whitelist then add imtranslator.net. Then press Allow, and you can then close Firefox, and re-load it. Then everything should be all good.

AutoFill Forms (1.0.8) – Mozilla FireFox Add-on Review

February 5, 2016

AutoFill Forms (1.0.8)

A. Ease Of Use: 4/5 – Getting better with every update. But it takes some getting use to. And short cuts could be way easier to use.

B. Security: (Very Un-secure) – If you don’t mind giving all your key information away. To whom ever is on your computer and decides to load up FireFox.

C. Usefulness: 4/5 – Very very useful if you are tired of always filling out the same online forms over and over again. AutoFill will fill in most online forms with a touch of the pencil icon. But there are still sometimes errors that occur once in a while. But they are by no  means a deal breaker.

D. FireFox Slow Down: None

E. Computer Slow Down: None

F. What Type Of User Would I Recommend To Use This Add-on: Any FireFox user could benefit from this add-on.

X-notifier (3.5.19) – Mozilla FireFox Add-on Review

February 4, 2016

X-notifier (3.5.19)

A. Ease Of Use: 5/5 – Very easy to setup multiple e-mail accounts. On any of several different free mail services. Such as Outlook, AOL, Yahoo, Gmail and many many more.

B. Security: (Very Un-secure) – It gives you a by-pass of all your passwords and usernames. Not recommended for shared and or public computers or for high security e-mail accounts. (I would also avoid any Wi-Fi hotspots as well.)

BB. Other Important Security Information:  Just remember your E-mail account passwords and usernames are view-able in the FireFox Options. Under SecuritySaved Passwords

C. Usefulness: 3/5 – If you are lazy like me or just have a really bad memory go for it. Just remember. You are at an SEVERELY ELEVATED risk of your e-mail account(s) being hacked and or hijacked. Due to how easy it is to find and copy your usernames and passwords.

D. FireFox Slowdown: Very minimal for most computers

E. Computer Slow Down: None

F. Type Of User I Would Recommend To Use This Add-on: I would only recommend this add-on for people who are unable to use e-mail without assistance.

**If you are good with the Internet and free e-mail accounts such as Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo and have a good memory. Please try to avoid this potentially massive security risk to your e-mail security and any sensitive data stored there-in.
