Cyber world also has its threats and crimes like the real world. The cyber threats, thieves and criminals are constantly trying to steal personal and financial data off the computers connected to Internet and other Networks. These criminals steal these data mostly for financial gains. With the availability of readymade solutions for Cyber attacks these attacks are become more and more common.
We always suggest our readers to use anti-virus softwares and take caution while opening links and other attachments in the emails. In this email, I will review and giveaway 10 Professional Edition Licenses of SUPERAntiSpyware, which is a popular and very effective tool to remove spywares. Spywares are basically programs, cookies or some other arrangement to steal any kind of data from your computer or keep an eye on your computer without your permission. Spywares usually send your information to Spyware creators, cyber criminals or other ill-intent people trying to steal your information.
Before I walk you through the interface and options, let me list down some of the features which I really like about this tool :
- Small in size, easy to download and Install
- Portable Version is available, no need to Install, just put it on a pen drive and use it on any PC
- Light on resources – you can still use your computer while scan is in progress, it won’t make it too slow
- Updated frequently for latest threat on Internet
- Free editions available
NOTE : We recommend our readers to use an Anti Spyware tool, but Anti-Spywares are not replacement for Anti-Viruses. Most of the Anti-Spywares are meant to remove Spywares and not viruses and other more complex trojans and infections. We recommend you to use an anti-spyware for added security along with your anti-virus tool.
I tested SUPERAntiSpyware on my Windows 7 32 bit PC and found it to be really effective in finding the spywares and potential threats which my Anti-Virus missed out on. This is so because spywares scan the computer with a more specialized purpose of finding out threat which may steal or access your computer’s data unlike anti-virus softwares which do a lot more.
SUPERAntiSpyware gives you an option to submit the Diagnostic report to them online, you may however skip this step if you don’t want to do it. It will scan your computer and will send out some non-personal information to its research labs. This is a part of the installation process only.
During the installation only, the SUPERAntiSpyware connects to the server for any updates on the tool and definitions to keep even the most recent threats away from your computer.
It also gives you an option to disable changing of Internet Explorer homepage. The reason behind it is the behavior of certain spywares which infect your computer to set a malicious webpage as your IE homepage which might harm your computer and may steal data off your PC.
After the Setup completes, you can launch the SUPERAntiSpyware and you will see the main window like the one below. It gives you a simple and easy to use options like “Scan Your Computer”, “Schedule Scanning”, “Check for Updates” etc.. It also displays the Program version, definitions update time and subscription information of the tool.
I ran a quick scan on my Windows 7 operating system partition to check for any Spyware threats,it took some 16 minutes to can my Hard disk partition of 100GB.
I was surprised to see a lot of potential threat cookies and tracking files detected which were not detected by the conventional Anti-virus softwares. Again the reason is anti-spywares are specialized to remove spywares only and they do it best.
It took less than a minute to clean it and I had to restart my computer to quarantine and clean the identified files and cookies off my PC.
Below is the settings Window of the tool which allows you a lot of options and flexibility in the way you want to use the tool. The settings Window is called “SUPERAntiSpyware Control Center” and has been designed to keep it simple. The settings have been divided into a few tabs to make it easy for users to use it.
The scheduled and real time scanning option is available in the Professional Editions. You can use these options and be assured that your PC will be scanned periodically to tackle any potential threats.
