Eating my RAM 2 stars
I downloaded SUPERAntiSpyware to replace Spybot, and I wasn't particularly impressed. This software hogs my RAM and made my computer incredibly slow and for some reason stopped my sound card from working. The anti-spyware scan was quick and quite thorough, but my computer slowed down to a crawl during the scan. This software has a good scanning ability but it lets itself down because of its terribly high amount of memory usage. Overall, I would not recommend SUPERAntiSpyware to others. If you have a fast computer, and you need a free anti-spyware program, then give it a try, but don't expect to be impressed. I will be sticking with Spybot, because although it's scan is slower and slightly less powerful, it does not eat away at my RAM. Price: Free

The software developer responded to this review on Jan 06, 2011: Your computer must have less than 512MB of RAM and be on an extremely slow processor as SUPERAntiSpyware uses VERY LITTLE RAM and if you are running the free edition, no CPU except when scanning. CPU has to be used when scanning to do its job - asking a product to not use the CPU is like asking your car to run without burning gas. Be aware that SpyBot will NOT see rootkits and other items hidden from the Windows API.
