I have used it for years, since Windows XP. It is a great program for removing spyware!
A Must for windows 7 ,works vary nice with x64
because it can detect viruses norton can't
Spybot has been over run by better malware programs such as Spyware Terminator, Threatfire and newer antivirus programs that go well beyond signature detection only such as MSE, Panda Cloud Antivirus, and RISING AV.
Destroys all spyware
i find this a great program, but it does take a while to get used to it.
i install it on all my friends computers and just tell them to use steps
1 download updates, 2 click immunize shield 3 click immunize green cross on top bar, wait until the two totals are the same i.e. protected total 4 run scan. delete all items found. it can save you a great deal of heartache in the long term
Very sloow to scan but do its job good.Scans for bots and some rootkits that antivira or anti-malware programs dosent.
Very reliable. Rare issues with online updating eventually get resolved. Extremely current with detection updates. I especially like the command line feature. I use a batch file to run Spybot S&D, then use Window's Scheduler to run it in the middle of the night, doing it all: update, detect, clean/fix, exit. Excellent!
easy to use, good protection, free
