Powerful & Low Cost

What do you like best?

Recommending to friends and family to use Spybot holds much more weight when they see that this popular security software is free for personal use.

What do you dislike?

The lack of antivirus for the personal use Spybot version can seem a bit unwelcome, but bundling Windows Defender along with Spybot tends to make up for this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In recommending Spybot to potential users, I would note that the free personal version typically covers everything that you would need an a personal antimalware solution. Bundle this with a good antivirus program, and Spybot tends to do much of the heavy lifting.

Moving on towards the professional version, it's a one stop shop for anything and everything you may need an an antivirus and/or antimalware solution. Moreso, the expert and advanced settings are very powerful tools in managing a secure IT environment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are currently solving our business problems of basic antimalware and antivirus coverage using Spybot.

It is essential in our computer.

What do you like best?

can be downloaded for free in its free version, and its main task is to detect and remove corrupt files, suspicious or spyware robots, which can be harmful to our computer.

The design of this program is really simple, with practically four buttons, to do everything, but still, it has many options.

What most attracts the attention of the program, at least to me, is the possibility of configuring it in several languages.

What do you dislike?

They should add other skins.

and it has a relatively high Ram Consumption.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it because it is free and has a simple interface with intuitive options, it is effective, it removes malware, and it is always updated.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

protection in the work stations in combination with other antivirus makes me feel more protective against computer intrusions and malicious advertising.

What Vulnerability Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

A good spyware program!

What do you like best?

The program updates and spyware databases are always updated and current! It picks up some spyware others don't.

What do you dislike?

Nothing against Spybot, but I literally use three different spyware programs to keep me covered. All of them seem to pick up some things and not others. This is the case with Spybot as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is part of a spyware scan I run every so often with other products as well that is separate from my virus checker. I do not enable it to run all the time, but instead manually run it in addition to other spyware programs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helps detect and remove spyware. Helps keeps my browsers free of annoying spyware pop-ups and unnecessary background processes from running.

Several years ago was a revolution and today is on the same level

What do you like best?

Immunization was always a selling point of this software and today is protection against some 250 000 types of malicious software.. There are diferent "moduls" for diferent browsers, in x86 an x64 modes. This is a must use for everone that had a misfortune to had a hijacked browser.

Also, "Rootkit scan" is a necessity today, for any standard anti-malware/anti-virus software. S&D have 2 levels, fast and deep-scan, both doing a great job.

What do you dislike?

Speed of updating is, after all this years, still a problem. With all today optics networks and high-speed internet it's incredible that some updates can take 10+ minutes to load. Also, 1st instalation can be a tricky one. 1st Immunization can be also time - consuming (but it's the best feature of this software).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Simple but revolutionary software that is a pleasure to work with. After instalation 1st thing to do is to immunize a PC, only after that You can go with all other interesting options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Security in work, blocking diferent types of malware, internet security in general.

Best spyware protection

What do you like best?

I have use this software for many years. I recommend this software to all my friends and l highly trust this software on its ability to protect and clean an OS.

over the years that i have used this, i always like the ability to clean and remove what i want in the registry. Its easy to understand and with detail descriptions, it makes it clear to remove what is harmful.

This software has browser protection and detection. It also scans for intrusions or potential problems within software that could be making your computer at risk.

In the end this software is free and is always having updates on the latest spyware and malware updates.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike. over the years there has been many advancements and has gotten faster in its scanning. i would like to see it a little more faster but you can't complain when its free and it works.

would like this software to be available in mac.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend to keep up to date with updates and releases. Also have more than one software detection.

In my experience, i have use this software and it works best to remove any intrusions in safe mode.

but everyone has their own method, however this has always worked for me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we have encountered where one malware didn't get detected but another picked it up right away. its best to have multiple detections but with updates and future advancements in software, i hope it detects what others have detected.

we are encountering very rare situations where we get one for mac and this software is not available for it.

Using Spybot in my enterprise level environment

What do you like best?

The simplicities of Spybot are the main draw. With minimal user input I am able to monitor over 150 workstations with plans to expand it further. Updates are seemless, though there have been a few instances where one or two adware breaches have occurred. Most due to user interference.

What do you dislike?

I wish updates would occur more frequently to the database of known malicious software. That is really my only complaint.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adware and spyware protection for over 150 workstations
