And To Think That Ashampoo Would Convince Enough

Curious on the thought that there might be something that could top the brilliance of programs such as Spybot S&D, I came across this one just to "experiment" and see how it compares to spyware-removal programs of high calibur (the trusted ones among users). It looks good and all, but the only flaw - which happens to be a major flaw in this case - is how much it tends to "forget" - in other words, Ashampoo's antiSpyWare program didn't scan obvious spyware that Spybot picked up in an instant (regardless of the alphabetical scan), which led me to immediately uninstalling this from my computer since the cause was pretty much there after three full scans; can't have a program that'll do absolutely nothing - except, of course, eat up space.

The interface of it looks nice and all, but I, for one, hardly consider that little factor to be one at all in determining the overall quality of a program. Now don't get me wrong, it's always nice to have a program that looks good and up-to-date in terms of a "modern feel", but what's the use if it hardly does anything at all? The only good thing aside from that that comes out of this program is its considerably quick speed in comparison to the first version, and protection of all process that are currently running on your computer.

But above all, I don't think it's worth spending 30 bucks on something such as this that evidently requires vast improvements - but once that's done (with issues such as improved spyware definitions, therefore catching more and in less time - which is the most essential part of any spyware-fighting program) then there's officially a reason to even keep it on the computer.
