SUPERAntiSpyware Test Results

We were testing the free version of Super Anti Spyware software for 7 days with a clean version of Windows 10 and a computer with these settings: processor i7, 4 GB of RAM, SSD drive.

Please be informed that this application is compatible only with Windows Vista, 7, 8, and 10 operating systems. Moreover, we added infected files with samples of Trojans and spyware. We did this to see how this software fights computer threats.

SUPERAntiSpyware detects a lot of viruses and potential threats.

The first impression about this software was positive. As mentioned before, we downloaded and installed it very quickly and easily. After that, we updated the database of virus definition before the scan.

The update of the database definition was very quick as well. Afterward, we launched a full computer scan. Surprisingly, the full scan of the computer didn't take much time – only about 10 minutes.

Usually, it takes about 30 minutes for other similar programs to complete the same action. The second good thing was that, during the scan, this software didn’t slow down the computer at all. Everything looked fine.


However, there also were some negative sides of this application. First of all, this program does not look modern and the user interface is outdated in comparison with its other opponents. It feels like we came back to 2005 when every software looked the same. It is not a big deal if the program does its job well, but, unfortunately, it doesn't.

As we mentioned before, we added some infected files on a fresh Windows 10 copy. After the super-fast scan, we got some results. The program detected lots of adware that spams the browser with unwanted adds and makes the PC vulnerable to viruses.

Customer Reviews

The anti-virus program has mixed reviews from its users. Many people claim that it marks tracking cookies as dangerous and removes them. Whether it's a good thing depends on your perspective – some people are actually happy to get rid of the junk, others dislike the fact that cookies are marked as malware.

The program does not make the computer run slower.

Additionally, one review states that Super Anti Spyware is a great complementary tool for detecting threats, but an additional product should be used for full protection. One user also writes that the application doesn't slow down the computer.

SUPERAntiSpyware Comparison

SUPERAntiSpyware and STOPzilla Antivirus 

SUPERAntiSpyware and STOPzilla Antivirus both provide average malware detection. If you are looking for easy and simple software with additional useful features, STOPzilla would be a better choice, even though it is more expensive. SUPERAntiSpyware offers a better price, quick scan, and 24/7 customer support. 

The detailed comparison of SUPERAntiSpyware and STOPzilla Antivirus is here.

SUPERAntiSpyware and SpyBot

Both security packages, SUPERAntiSpyware and SpyBot offer low budget security, so are great choices for those, who do not want to spend much money on an antimalware application. However, they both demonstrated low detection rates, and they both have confusing user interfaces. However, if you need to choose one, we would recommend you SUPERAntiSpyware.

The Final Verdict

It is a low-budget program with an average virus detection rate. Not the worst solution for improving the security of your computer, but there is no doubt that it needs some improvement. This software is a great solution for those who don’t want so spend a lot of money for the license. However, make sure you have additional protection and don't visit malicious websites!
