Spyware & Adware Removal is a security software solution that helps users block dangerous files that attempt to make modifications to the system.
It’s not an anti-spyware product per se, but a very simple application supposed to add a new security layer to your computer and monitor activity in order to block dangerous attempts.
With a minimal GUI that could make everyone believe they’re dealing with just a basic piece of software, Spyware & Adware Removal also comprises a scanner that checks the computer, detects and removes dangerous objects.
The so-called “Spy Guardian” however is the ace up its sleeve because once loaded, it automatically keeps an eye on the computer and blocks all files that attempt to make modifications to the Windows registry and try to install or download new files on the local drives.
Spyware & Adware Removal places an icon in the System Tray and although it’s supposed to run all the time, the footprint on hardware resources is minimal. What’s more, it runs flawlessly on all Windows versions and doesn’t require administrator privileges on Windows 7 workstations.
It’s not all just milk and honey though. Spyware & Adware Removal isn’t as effective as it promises to be and the scanner doesn’t even work on Windows 7. The whole computer checking process takes just one second, with a dialog claiming that the system is entirely clean.
The help manual is just basic and doesn’t provide too much information on the available features, which isn’t quite good news for beginners.
But overall, Spyware & Adware Removal can lend you a hand if you’re trying to stay on the safe side. It doesn’t comprise a definition update system, but it can monitor the computer for malicious activity.
