    Has anyone tried it recently? I know 2.0 sucked... And well every versions sucked... Could anyone try it against some simple threats and see how it fairs or so? Or see if its still crapware.. I know its on rogue list and many other things.. But it got removed and Spyware Terminator is awesome and is a de-listed program...

    Though I think it may still be I'm just curios... From the link above it says...

    "Database of 500 spyware and adware threats"

    Errr.... Only 500? lol

    While it may be de-listed I would not classify it as "awesome" in any way. People tend to use it for the "free" real-time protection. The program is being updated on a regular basis so it seems, and hopefully they can work on the detection rates.

    Spy Hunter......ugh. :thumbd: I should test it on an infected computer, along with Winantivirus. :shifty:

    Yes detection is low, but like 95% of the times I check theres a definition update out so its not like they're not trying.

    Would be greatly appreciated, though i don't care for Winantivirus results... Although it might be good for a laugh lol.
