A few weeks ago Mike Duncan, Director of Business Development at SUPERAntiSpyware.com asked me to take a peek at their software. Being the Geek that never sleeps and challenge accepted off we go on passage into the world of SUPERAntiSpyware.

The results of the testing are beyond the scope of where this post leads but let’s say this, SUPERAntiSpyware has replaced the previous Anti-Malware software installed on this geeks PC’s and no computer leaves this shop without a free version installed.

The masses of features that come with the Free Version launch SUPERAntiSpyware right to top of the class adding the features you get from the website itself make the grade an A+.

Never saying SUPERAntiSpyware is the greatest and  should absolutely never be your only layer of protection. Multiple layers of security software should exist and SUPERAntiSpyware is designed to exemplify and accolade other security applications.

Ed note: You can install this right along side your current anti-malware program (i.e. Microsoft Security Essentials) but avoid running scans with both programs at the same time as there will be conflicts.

With SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition you receive:

  • Quick, complete and custom Scanning of your hard drives, removable drives, memory and registry.
  • Top notch detection and removal of any Adware, Malware, Trojans, Worms, Spyware, Hi-Jack Protection, Key-Loggers.
  • Trust items and exclude folder where you can place trusted or excluded folder and files to help speed up scans.

BootSafe that simplifies the process of booting into safe mode and Repairs allow you to fix and or repair items that may have been damaged by the gremlins attacking your system.

Rick’s Tip: The repair option can be used to fix the listed problems on PC’s that are not or previously infected. These applications such as Task Manager just for one reason or another no longer work. Quick fixed for me a few times this week alone.

SUPERAntiSpyware Online Scan detects and removes spyware/malware infections. The scanner doesn’t install anything on your Start Menu or Program Files and does not need to be uninstalled.

The SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scan is free for personal use. The scanner contains the latest definitions so you don’t need Internet access on the infected system to scan. If your running SUPERAntiSpyware Portable from Portable Apps you can still update.

Threat Research Center is a list of new threats discovered and removed today that were not detected by other anti-malware/spyware programs.

If you don’t like downloading anything from the Internet a CD can be purchased. An extra fully registered copy of SUPERAntiSpyware Professional as well as an Upgrade to a lifetime subscription of SUPERAntiSpyware can be found through the order page.

Volume and site licensing for SUPERAntiSpyware to Corporate/Enterprise as well as special quotes to educational and non-profit organizations can be found at the Volume/Site Licensing Information page.

If you ever need to manually update your definitions exit SUPERAntiSpyware, and then click the link at the bottom of the Database Definition Information page. Save the file to your desktop or where ever you can find it then click it to run the installer. Once the installation is complete, exit and restart SUPERAntiSpyware for the new definitions to be active.

Often spyware will attack the very software you are using to protect your computer. With SUPERAntiSpyware you can download two .exe files, RUNSAS.EXE and SASSAFERUN.COM disguised variably to sham the spyware and launch SUPERAntiSpyware.

Rick’s Tip: Change the name to “iexplore.exe” without the quotes. Most malware wants access to the internet so will allow Internet explorer to run. If a failure to execute dialog box appears, move the box out of the way and try again.

Obviously everything loaded into SUPERAntiSpyware can’t be mentioned here so a complete with screen-shot  documentation and help are available.

    Nice Tip Mr. Rick Mizell & Welcome to Windows Guides

    The “SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner” is a real classy piece of software! This will detect Malware that other have missed, however I’m not saying other superb security offerings are useless! When cleaning an infested PC I recommend this very highly, the detection rate is fantastic and will wipe away nasty Trojans etc. I did have some conflicts with Windows Vista, but this seems to have be eradicated.
    All in all a top notch and FREE scanning tool :-P

    Thanks for sharing this info on SuperAntiSpyware, Rick. It seems like a great tool and it looks they offer quite a bit for a free service. You mentioned that you can run this along your antivirus software – have you noticed any decrease in your PC’s performance / speed from running both?

    1. Triage Teknologics says:

      There is no performance loss with the free version. There is no Real Time blocking. Even with the paid version and Real Time blocking enabled your only going to notice about 2MB memory usage. I tested SUPERAntiSpyware on a system with only 256MB of memory running WindowXP. No ill effects were noticed above what I expected running a Windows OS on less than recommended memory.

      Myself I cannot deny or verify for every software that SUPERAntiSpyware will run beside. I have had no trouble with AVG, Avira and Avast on XP, Vista, Windows7. I even got the free version working in Linux.

    I used to use this but found it didn’t like 64bit hardware/OS. I still use it on my 32bit stuff though.
