Spyware Terminator – Best Free Spyware/Malware Protection

Having tested virtually all of the major anti-spyware applications over the past year or more, I’ve settled, for now, on Spyware Terminator primarily due to its strong real-time protection against spyware, adware, Trojans, key-loggers, home page hijackers and other malware threats.

In addition to Spyware Terminator, my home system is running: Zone Alarm (Firewall), WinPatrol (System Monitor), Avira AntiVir Personal, ThreatFire 3 (Blocks zero-day attacks heuristically), SnoopFree Privacy Shield (Anti-keylogger). This is my minimum safety configuration; depending on circumstances, in addition, I will also use Sandboxie (a free sand box application).

A simple to use interface makes this program easy to setup, customize and run, for both less experienced and expert users alike.

Spyware Terminator excels in strong active protection against know and unknown threats. If anything, I find it perhaps a little overly aggressive. On the other hand, better this than the alternative.

The program rates very highly in offering protection against spyware, adware, Trojans, key-loggers, home page hijackers and other malware threats. The scan behavior can be customized based on your level of experience; ranging from automatic interception for the less experienced user, to potential threat control for the more experienced user.

A definite plus is the program’s ability to schedule spyware scans on a daily or a weekly basis to ensure your computer’s continuing integrity. When set to download updates automatically, Spyware Terminator will check for, download and install new updates, keeping all files current with minimal user input. Optionally, you can choose to update manually.

Included with Spyware Terminator is Open Source ClamWin anti-virus, a reasonably effective anti-virus solution. My personal choice however, has been to disengage this side of the package and to run Avira AntiVir Personal instead.

In the time I have been using Spyware Terminator as my principal line of spyware protection, I have not had to deal with a single instance of spyware infection. This application does what it says it will do in an efficient and effective manner.

Spyware Terminator is free for both home and business use.
