Still is worth its price 3 stars by DarrinSingleton Jul 16, 2015 (Read all my 5 reviews)
I use Spybot for years; the recent changes in program are not encouraging. The program nags too often; it can open its warning screen while computer is locked and consume pretty much resources with it, for reason unknown to me. Currently, all the important actions are manual; interface became too complicated, memory footprint has become very much. Yet still its efficiency as scanner is good, I just do not allow it to stay running in background, to save resources and nerves, it's appeals to pay are just irritating. However, it was once extremely good piece of freeware, so I still recommend it. Just use something else with it, for fuller safety. show Review details
Used to be great 3 stars by 7327837886 Nov 10, 2014
When they offered a true, Free version, I was an impressed user. The "nag" screen asking for donations was perfect. Over time, I donated money, particularly when the software helped me remove difficult spyware from myother computers. Now they offer a "FREE" versoion that clearly is crippled, and not as good. Want true protection? PAY PAY PAY. forget it.. ...it's just not that good anymore, and it's slow, show Review details
Spybot is more for professionals 4 stars by Spark245 Jul 29, 2013
Yes like I said a home user is not waiting for a program like this. That is because it is too complicated. Also the program itself is somewhat slow. But the good side is that the detection rate is incredible. I recommend spybot however for home users I recommend Force Byte Detector since this program can get rid of adwaretoolbars and can protect you against adds,scripts,adware,toolbars. This program is pretty lightweight,clean,fast and free! Also this program has a build in cleanup system which is all friendly too use. The program itself is safe (verified by Virus Total) You should check it out. show Review details
