I got an email today from an anti-spyware company asking me to review their product and post the review on the blog. So I was curious about it and searched google for someone that had already reviewed it. Unfortunantly for the anti-spyware company not many people can say good things about it since it is, itself, spyware. From Major Geeks:
That said, we find bundling any sort of toolbar or software with an anti-malware application to be inappropriate. Someone looking to remove already unwanted software from their machine should not be forced to install MORE software in order to do this.
Spyware Terminator has been de-listed for this reason until, if ever, the bundled software is removed.
So to all of our readers, I suggest staying away from Spyware Terminator, in fact I suggest you do research on any anti-spyware utility you might use. There are two anti-spyware utilities that I use and trust; Spybot and Ad-aware.
Update: Major Geeks did relist this application, but not without hesitation. Major Attitude, co-founder of the site, will be keeping an eye on the application to be sure that it doesn’t go back to it’s old practices. I still wouldn’t recommend this application because of the companies malware past.
