If you want to ensure complete protection for your computer, a simple antivirus program will not be enough as they will usually not detect threats like spyware. SUPERAntiSpyware Professional, however, has been designed to complement most antivirus solutions.
Installation & Requirements
There are two modes to run the installation in, the quick one and the custom one. If you choose the first one you will not have access to the installer’s options as it will automatically set them for you. Choosing the custom path will let you have a broader range of settings. The supported operating systems are Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7 and 8 as well as Windows Servers 2003 and 2008.
The program’s interface is really quite simple. Although the visuals might look a bit dated, the interface is very user friendly and easy to navigate. It is obvious that the developers have chosen convenience over looks and it works in the favour of the application for the most part.
Scanning for malware is extremely easy. You only need to choose a scan type right from the main interface and the click on the Scan your computer button. For heavily infected systems that need an immediate scan and cleaning mode you can enable the rescue scan. That particular mode is a huge drain on the resources and needs access to critical information so you should only ever run it if your computer is in a dire state. It is also recommended to perform such scans in safe mode.
When the scanning is done you will be given detailed information about the malware detected by the application. Malicious threats are put into various categories, some more important than others so that you can choose what you want to delete. For example, some people have no issue with ad-tracking cookies as they like having personalized advertisements. You will be given detailed information about each threat, including the location and the name, so that you can make your own decisions.
If you want more options about the scanning like the file extensions you want to be scanned and the actions you want the software to take, you will need to click on the System Tools & Program Settings tab. From there you can access specific parts of the application like the general preferences, the real-time detection utility, the quarantine and the task scheduler. In addition to that you will have access to the program’s extra tools like the file removal one and the registry repair.
