Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for Spyware Terminator
Most computer users protect their workstations using full-fledged antivirus solutions that include or run in conjunction with a firewall. Even if this should provide enough shelter from the ever-spreading malware, an extra layer of security that targets specific threats doesn't hurt and an application like Spyware Terminator could be just what you need.
This software has the power to detect and remove spyware and adware quickly and easily. The greatest thing about Spyware Terminator is that it works fast and has all the features you would need to keep malware at bay.
First of all, this powerful enemy of all spyware comes with real-time protection, which means the computer is on the safe side all the time, connected to the Internet or not. The application monitors the entire activity on the computer and blocks dangerous files from infecting the machine.
Secondly, there's an automatic update feature that keeps Spyware Terminator up to date with the latest definitions.
Last but not least, the application provides several scanning modes, on-demand and automatic, one for each type of user. Plus, the on-demand mode includes three different options, fast, full and custom and each of them worked flawlessly during our tests.
The settings menu is pretty rich, so you'll find there a lot of options to customize like those for antivirus, real-time or host-based intrusion prevention system (HIPS) protection.
Spyware Terminator also comes with a handful of useful tools, such as an online vault, a system optimizer or a startup tuner.
All things considered, Spyware Terminator remains one of the best tools of its kind, and is an easy way to defend your computer against adware, spyware, hijackers, keyloggers and other similar threats.
