Spyware Terminator – Free Spyware Protection
Spyware Terminator is offered as a free spyware remover. It is free to download and to use, you will never be charged for it. Spyware Terminator aims to provide spyware search and destroy function and still find and stop viruses. In order to successfully perform spyware search and destroy tasks the software utilizes advanced technologies all of which are free to you, the user. I downloaded this software and I have begun using it, so below I will outline my findings. First I’d like to mention that while this is a very comprehensive suite of spyware seek and destroy utilities, it is available for free, meaning no cost to try, use, or keep it.
Spyware Terminator uses many technologies to keep your computer safe from everyday threats. Features like fast spyware scanning, real time protection, HIPS protection, and antivirus protection work in a brilliant symphony to protect you and your personal data. Fast spyware scanning usually means fast spyware search and destroy. I found this software to be both effective and user friendly. In case you are wondering, HIPS stands for host intrusion prevention. The program creates a database of executable files on your hard disk and monitors their behavior, if they get out of line; a warning is displayed prompting user interaction. To facilitate more robust spyware search and destroy, Spyware Terminator includes ClamWin, which is the Windows version of ClamAV, an open source highly regarded antivirus program. In addition to those features, Spyware Terminator is one of the only free spyware removal software packages to offer free scheduled scanning, which is a feature that is usually found on software that costs a bit of money. Another feature of Spyware terminators which contributes a lot to its spyware search and destroy success is its automatic updates.
Spyware terminator allows the user to select a time to update the software, it is configurable so it can update every day, week, or when you tell it to. This is another nice feature which is typically found on software costing lots more. Finally, we reach Spyware Terminator’s final great selling point, the support for it is free. When Spyware Terminator is having trouble performing its principle role “spyware search and destroy”, you can e-mail tech support and at no cost to you, they will help you figure out what is going on. Really, this is a very robust spyware seek and destroy package and it’s completely free.
