Caused my whole computer to run stupidly slow 1 stars by coreysugden896 Aug 28, 2016
For a few hours I was trying to find the cause of my computer running slow, baring in mind the OS was just installed on a new SSD and there was almost no CPUMemory usage. Turns out it was this terrible piece of software 'writing' to my SSD and causing my whole system to just chug if I did as little as open Windows Explorer. Thanks for ripping me off. show Review details
Scan took ages, never fixed the issue 1 stars by gfmcculloch232 Mar 30, 2016
Spent two days repeatedly scanning my PC due to the scans taking FOREVER. Spybot kept finding and deleting things but not throughly enough as they just kept coming back. No customer support option, even though I was using the paid version. Ended up using Another popular spyware remover which fixed my issue really quickly and efficiently. show Review details
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
