Difficult to use - intermittent problems 1 stars by noresterguy502 Jan 15, 2016
For example, when I do a scan and then click on fix it hangs up and I have to shut down and re-open the Start Center. There are many problems such as this in the current licensed version. And the support... what support? show Review details
Would not recommend 1 stars by donba27789 Dec 14, 2015
I have been using the free version for years and very happy with it. When I upgraded to windows 10 I decided to purchase the antivirus version. It's the worst 13.99 I ever spent. Running this software has changed the speed of my I7 processor to run like an old 286. Every internet page causes anywhere from 1 to 5 script errors that I have to either allow or not before I can do anything. I tried contacting Customer service by email to see if I can change settings to speed it up and eliminate the constant script errors. I received an immediate reply that they received my email and would respond shortly. It's been over a week and I'm still waiting. The only thing that is worse than their software is there lack of customer service. In the process of deleting this crap and hope that gets me back to where I was. show Review details
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
