Reliability and Security
Spybot + antivirus hasn’t got the best online record for security tests and performance. The scans are very quick… but maybe too quick? We tested the software on a riddled PC and only 73/100 malicious files were caught and removed. Unless you’re very witty on a computer and feel you know exactly where not to go then Spybot might not supply good enough protection for you.
Detects and removes malicous software on your computer like viruses, adware or spyware.
Detect which websites are safe and can be trusted. Block malware websites and downloads.
Adware is malicous software that automatically displays or downloads advertising material such as banners or pop-ups.
Support and Customer Service
The Spybot website is very basic and looks like it needs a serious revamp. However, they do still include a knowledge base section, again very basic but does cover most aspects of their software. There’s no livechat or phone numbers, they rely on a contact form and support requests, so don’t expect to get immediate support.
