The Best Anti-Spyware Software 2013 Review with pros and cons
In today's world most people have a computer or some type of device that connects to the Internet. Though a computer makes life much easier and allows you to connect to the world around you in new ways, it can also become a magnet for unscrupulous software developers who have nothing better to do than to create programs and viruses that wreak havoc on your PC. Even with the latest and most up to date anti-virus software, sneaky programs can still get in.
Many people are finding that they need anti-spyware, but are unsure of what programs will work best. Some people feel that they can live without spyware protection but quickly change their minds when they are faced with a spyware program that is impossible to remove manually. No matter what your thoughts on spyware, having the right protection for your computer is always a good thing. With spyware protection, you can rest assured that your computer is protected at all times, from the risks of spyware threats.
Though it can be particularly sluggish in scanning, it does effectively protect your computer from a variety of spyware programs, Trojans, viruses, and infectious malware.
Through the scans of Anti-Malware Pro, the program works to find spyware, malware, keyloggers, and other programs that can be used to hack your computer or cause malicious harm. Users can choose whether they would like these scans to be performed automatically or through command. This allows users to choose when they would like the scan to occur. Since the program uses a lot of memory in a scan (as much as 90MB), this can be helpful when you are needing to use your computer.
This malware program has been found to be one of the easiest to use. Perfect for the novice, who does not understand the workings of complicated programs, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro offers most of the services that one would need to fight off spyware, without all of the advanced options that inexperienced users would find cumbersome.
Through Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro, users can choose from three different scanning options. There is Fast (which scans the most common files of your computer), the Complete (which scans everything) and the Flash (which only scans the memory and the automated processes on your computer).
Though a bit sluggish and slow in performing a scan (at only 10MB per second) the program makes up for its slow pace with its strong ability to remove malware. With real-time protection, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro offers a stealthy protection for those who are on the Internet frequently.
- Offers three scanning choices
- Real-time protection
- Easy to use interface tabs
- Blocks dangerous sites as you browse
- Fast support response

The first step to scanning the computer is to simply click on the scan button. The tool begins working in scanning every single item on the computer. Once it has finished, the user is given a report. The user reviews the report and checks each item, and then simply clicks on Exterminate and the malware or spyware is gone. Very few malware tools offer such ease in removal.
In the newest version, there are four different scanning options available. Memory Scan scans only the memory of the computer, making it the fastest scan. This will only pickup active malware, spyware, and viruses but can be an effective and fast tool for removal. There is also the Smart Scan option, which checks the areas of your computer that are typically the most vulnerable to threats. There is also the Full Scan option, which provides the most complete scan of your entire computer system. Finally Exterminate It also offers a Custom Scan. This scan option allows the user to choose the exact areas of the computer that they want scanned.
The scanning process for Exterminate It also offers different commands that allow the user to customize the scan. There is a Silent command that scans without notifying the user. This is great if you are busy working and do not want to be interrupted. There is the Force Close command, which closes the program automatically, after it has performed the scan. Along with these commands, there is also the Scan Log option, which allows the program to save all of the scanned items into a convenient folder of the user's choosing.
- Features a user-friendly interface
- Easy click options for fast removal
- Four scanning options to choose from
- Scanning commands that offer more options

The customer service team reads the report, finds the solution, and sends the user a customized fix that removes the malware completely.
Spynomore is a pretty easy to use system. With a straightforward interface, users can easily choose their scanning options and can pause the scan or stop it completely. Once the scan has completed, a detailed report shows what the program found and users have the option of removal. The Roll Back feature means that all found items will go to quarantine. This prevents the removal of useful programs and files.
Spynomore also offers Active Protection, a service that most find very useful. This portion of the program keeps you protected as you browse the web, blocking dangerous sites before you are able to open them. Users are also given information on the amount of virus vaccinations that they have. These virus vaccinations are updated regularly, to prevent new malware from infecting your computer.
One of the biggest pros of the Spynomore program is the level of customer service that is offered. Many malware and spyware removers come with very little to no support. The Spynomore support team manually reviews all ticket submissions and helps users to remove stubborn malware or answer questions.
- Easy and fast installation
- Blocks dangerous sites
- Excellent customer support
- Different scan mode options
