This does the job but...,
This review is from: Webroot Spy Sweeper (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This was a straight forward installation and the registration and update were equally straight forward. A full scan of my PC and standalone hard drives took 1 hour and 20 minutes and no problems were detected. I also have Spybot Search & Destroy installed and regularly update and run it. And herein lies the problem - Spybot Search & Destroy is a freeware program.
At the time of writing Webroot protects against 327,486 definitions; Spybot 503,216. Additionally, whilst I had Webroot installed I was unable to update Spybot passive protection, and there were 100+ temporary files which CCleaner could not remove and which I was unable to remove manually (Windows would not allow it).
In summary, as no problems were found on my PC after scanning with Webroot and I regularly scan with Spybot, the evidence suggests that a free program (Spybot) does just as an effective job as this paid for program.
