    I think the paid version of spybot is worth it, they beat the price point of the competition and it works well, also I like the fact I can see what virus's it's searching for, and what it's doing at any given moment, where as Windows Defender treats it's user like a moron, and shows you nothing, and won't let you see "threat details" until after you remove the issue. Why? Well because Microsoft do More

    Trust is earned NOT bought . I trust Spybot more then any other security app out there. I recommend it to every user that find themselves stock due to ransom war or whatever the web can trough at you. Pros: The ease of use and the updates that insure it's uptodate. Cons: Until I use it with Win 10 I wont know. Still I feel it will be as solid as it always has been.

They refuse to answer any email sent to them for support.I've written them 4 times and never received a answer.Even though I deleated the older version and am using the updated one the old one keeps popping up telling me to update my virus definitions.I keep emailing them as to how to stop this and they refuse to answer.So don't expect tech help from them.I More

    Very poor virus detector. Do not purchase spybot! i purchased and used the premium spybot on 2 different pcs and both were infected with viruses that spybot did not detect, including the ice virus. I would highly recommend malwarebytes, which found all the viruses that spybot did not. However, for the free version to remove adware, that is not too bad of a side tool, especially since one is not de More

    It works!. I have used and relied on Spybot S&D for a good few years and always found it reliable and intuitive. I was surprised to read some adverse comments about the later version in the PC press as I have had no issue with it as regards removing malware. I was recently called in to fix a neighbour's PC which had got the Cheshire Police ransomware on it. Fortunately, I was able to downl More

    Disappointed . I am a bit disappointed. I have been using spybot for years now and recently a new hijacker came out called dosearches.com it hijacks your home page your search engines and every time you remove it from your browser the next time you open the browser it's there again. I ran spybot when I restarted my computer, I ran spybot as an administrator and it is not helping me one bit with th More

    Most awesome spyware ever!. I love spybot...however, someone who shares a computer with me keeps deleting it and I don't understand why unless they are trying to mess with my stuff which has totally been jacked with ever since I've known him. I'm downloading again. Than you for keeping it free. I've been out of work for several months and it's hard to look for work when someone keeps changing all More

    No active protection and a reputation for crashing systems. SS&D does not provide active protection, it only finds malware after you're infected. Furthermore, it has a reputation for crashing systems. Pros: it removes some malware. Cons: active protection. better file scanning so it doesn't eliminate legitimate operating system files

    Good But Needs To Improve. Spybot has been an old friend of mine since the days when it was first released........although it is good at detecting and removing malware,it does not detect them all.........the most useful function is the Immunisation feature and the Hosts File Protection.Use Spybot with a good antivirus and you are good to go....... Pros: Immunisation. Tea Timer(Real-Time Guard) Int More

    what's better?. Somebody knows if Spybot is better than Ad-Aware as far as virus definition and result?

  • by Anonymous

    It's simple to use, but is it that effective. I downloaded Spybot because everywhere I looked on the net it said it was one the best software to protect against spyware. Since then I've used it regularly to clean up my PC and stay protected. However, recently, not only have I had problems updating, I also realized that it keeps detecting the same spyware (mostly harmless threats on IE). I'm starti More
