5-0 out of 5 stars Spy Sweeper is The Best Antispyware You Can Buy
My Top Five Rated Anti-spywares:

1) Spy Sweeper v2.6 or 3.0 by Webroot Software *
2) Ad-Aware by Lavasoft v6.0 (paid full versions) *
3) Ad-Aware by Lavasoft v6.0 (free version)
4) Spybot Search & Destroy v1.3 (free, donation-ware) by Safer-Networking-org
5) McAfee Antispyware 2005 v1.0 * ( newly released but already highly rated and moving up fast)

* - These antispywares use real time scanning of system memory to detect spyware before it invades your system.

I have used all the above Antispyware and at this point in time Spy Sweeper seems to do the best job at detecting and removing Spyware/Adware/Tracking cookies and it has the most extensive set of options. The interface is simple and effective and allows you to customize it exactly to your needs. Choose to protect your Internet Explorer 6 browser homepage from adware changes, block tracking cookies, schedule system scans, enable automatic detections updates, allow it to ignore detecting friendly softwares or automatically delete malware. You can even highlight the discovered spyware and click on an information link which connects to Webroot's spyware database to tell you more details about each of the bad software pests that were detected on your computer. I have found Spy Sweeper to detect more spyware and more spyware traces left on your system than any of the others I have tried. After running Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D and even deleting the spyware they found from my computer Spy Sweeper still was able to detect numerous pests and traces of them left behind that the others missed. The only drawback is that Spy Sweeper takes much longer to do a complete scan of your entire system than the others but it does to do a better job scanning and detecting.

I found Spy Sweeper to have very little negative impact on my overall system speed or performance. On my a Pentium 3, 1Ghz notebook computer I am using a combination of Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware (free version), SpySweeper, and McAfee Antispyware 2005, McAfee Antivirus 2004, and Zone Alarm Pro 4.5 firewall all at the same time with the McAfee Antispyware and Spy Sweeper programs both scanning system memory and executable programs in real-time for spyware. The McAfee Antispyware program is brand new and with its current release version 1.0 does not detect tracking cookies. However, I really like the McAfee program's simple interface, its auto-updating features and its seamless integration with McAfee Antivirus 2004 and the McAfee Security Center. The McAfee Antispyware also works great as a stand alone antispyware product when coupled with any other company's antivirus software. Although at the time of this review the other antispyware programs do in fact seem to have somewhat better detection rates for the more common spywares, adwares & tracking cookies, during a recent scan of my notebook computer the McAfee Antispyware 2005 was able to detect and completely remove one very bad piece of spyware/adware that all of the other programs had completely missed.

Spybot S&D is an excellent free program (donation-ware). It is in fact rated #1 by many top security software experts and it has some very nice customizable features such as its "immunize" and "teatimer" settings which protect spyware from making changes to your computer registry or system settings. You could disagree about which is the best of the free spyware programs. Spybot S&D has an edge in preventing spyware infestations with its array of customizable features and its ability to warn you of potential weaknesses in your system security but Ad-Aware provides more frequent updates and seems to do a slightly better job at detecting spyware and adware during its full system scans. Since both Spybot and Ad-Aware (free version) are completely free you should download and use both of them. If you really like the free version of Ad-Aware you might consider purchasing one of the more complete Ad-Aware paid for full featured versions (Ad-Aware Plus or the most advanced Ad-Aware Pro) which include automatic updating and real time scanning.

This was a very close race among the top five and each one of these highly rated antispyware programs can be very effective in preventing various forms of spyware from infecting your computer but at this point in time I have to give five stars and the winning trophy for the best stand alone antispyware program to Webroot's Spy Sweeper.

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest software ever!
My computer was a disaster riddled with spyware. Probably because of Kazaa. I thought it was a simple virus which I found with Norton, and until now I had never heard of spyware. My computer still was slow as heck and barely moving on the internet after the virus was quarantined. I thought the computer was toast.

But I did some research and decided to take a chance on Spy Sweeper. For $30 it was a lot cheaper than a new computer or an expensive tech repair. To my astonishment, the program found 103 cookies? in about 10 minutes, and in another 15 minutes, and after rebooting, my PC was good as new.

As long as it continues to sweep, Spy Sweeper rules!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product
So far this product has worked very well and seems to have done it's job for the most part. After buying PC Cillin Internet Security 2004(very good also), I still had some issues that remained unresolved. A trojan horse virus and tons of spy and adware along with a host of other "trash" was still comandeering my machine. The PC Cillin removed the lot of and still protects my machine, however Spy Sweeper was the icing on the cake. This program, once installed detected just about every removable piece of "ware" on my machine and only hiccuped once. I've ran it several times and each time it finds at least one more hidden item.
The only two scares I had were 1) on initial install, it seemed to want to install itself twice. Either way, the program was successful in doing that. 2) I had that nasty Gain/Gator spy/ad ware on my machine and it attached itself to my clock. Sweeper got extremely bogged down and appeared to lock up my machine when it located this one. Rather than freak out and slam the product, I waited about 15 minutes while it worked it's way through that mess. The initial scan took over 1 1/2, however when it was complete, Sweeper found over 2500 pieces of internet garbage and quarantined them. My machine is now running around 95% of it's original efficiency after the installation of these two products and the net is also much faster. I'm no guru, but I do my homework before buying anything. Many hours were spent researching this product and it's compatibility with PC Cillin and other programs I've installed. Thumbs up guys. If you can ever find us the person responsible for the spy/ad garbage, let me know...I want his head for a door knocker.

2-0 out of 5 stars Slow on the Computer & Even Slower Support
It does slow up the computer even in the low priority mode. Their support people I do not think exist as I have written twice with no response. I know it is a "cheap" program but when they offer support I expect them to give it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Did not get the job done
I bought two licenses of Spy Sweeper for my two computers. On my Windows 2000 box, Spy Sweeper found lots of stuff, so I told it to remove everything it found. The software needed a reboot to remove one thing, so I rebooted. When the computer came back up, I could not connect to the Internet. I e-mailed Webroot support. That was a week ago. I have not gotten a reply. I e-mailed the symptoms of the problem to Dell, and they diagnosed the problem as TCP/IP registry corruption. Maybe that wasn't Spy Sweeper, but it does a lot with the registry. I ran Spy Sweeper on my daughter's computer as well, and, again it found lots of stuff, which I removed. However, the main spyware/adware that caused me to buy Spy Sweeper was Adtomi, which I had been unable to eradicate (it manages to keep getting itself into startup areas). Spy Sweeper was not successful in getting rid of it either. I will be testing out Webroot's 30-day money-back guarantee policy tomorrow. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible technical support
On my XP Dell laptop this product would not start. I got an error message which was conveyed to Stomp by e-mail for their advice. They responded promptly. I followed their instructions to the letter... copy all the .dll files into the main folder, and leaving the original .dll files in their original location. This did not work...same error message. (This problem must be common because it is addressed extensively in FAQ). I also uninstalled and reinstalled, etc. to no avail. I followed up with another e-mail. Their response was then that the problem was being worked on. After a couple of weeks I checked and found my request closed without my knowledge. I made a second identical request, to no avail. They just closed their file without any acknowledgement to me. Nothing... no explanation or apology... nothing. Now I have a piece of software which is useless to me. I know it works great on 98se machines, but question XP. Would appreciate help if someone knows the answer.

3-0 out of 5 stars Works ok, But
I was never able to fully restore. The only thing that really worked was to re-install XP and then do the recovery from there.

The results then work ok as long as I never use any of the driver options, including the "recommended".

All in all, better than Ghost, but not by very much.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy Automated Backup
There are wizards that guide you through backing up an entire drive, just important files, or making a "disaster recovery" backup in case your hard disk crashes and you can't boot.

Once you've defined a "backup set" that includes which files to back up and whether you want to back up all files or just changed files ("full" backup versus "incremental" or "differential" backups), you can select a set from a drop down menu and hit one button to back up. Just two steps to a frequently-run canned backup.

For example: I have two sets, one called "Photoshop Full" and another called "Photoshop Incremental." I run "Photoshop Full" once a month or so to back up all my digital photography hobby work. That takes about an hour to run. Every night, I run "Photoshop Incremental" to back up just the files I've worked on that day, which takes about 2 minutes. I just select which set I want from the drop down, load the media, and press a button. That's it!

It supports CD-R, DVD+RW, and DVD+R. These are the formats I've tried; it supports many more optical formats, plus tape drives and external hard disks.

Compression is supported, as is hardware compression if your device supports it. Many SCSI tape drives do.

Backups can be scheduled to run at pre-determined times. You can have a backup run at 2am, for example. Do make sure you load media with sufficient space before you go to bed.

Restore is also painless: you can quickly restore the latest version of any backed up file, or you can choose which version of the file you want to back up. So, if you mess up a document beyond recovery, for example, you can restore yesterday's or last month's version.

On the negative side, the backup MUST be restored with this program. It doesn't write regular files that you can just copy off the backup media back to your hard disk. And, backups can only span up to 32 pieces of media, regardless of the media capacity. That's about 150GB for DVD+RW, or 23GB for CD-R. If you have more data than that, you cannot do "whole disk" backups; you must choose smaller file sub-sets to back up.

Disaster Recovery REQUIRES a floppy disk drive. I don't have one. It won't create a bootable recovery CD, as far as I can tell.

The GUI could be a little more dressy too, but I'm nitpicking here.

No more excuses for not backing up! Set up your most frequent backups as backup sets, then enjoy two-click or scheduled, unattended backups. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Disk Warrior is a disaster
I purchased Disk Warrior for my iMac and had no sooner inserted the disk than my computer froze. I mean, froze so completely that I had to remove the disk with a paper clip and unplug the computer to begin a restart. I complained to Alsoft and was told to disconnect any peripherals that had not come with my Mac. I don't have any peripherals of this description. I asked for my money back and was refused.
Alsoft will not communicate further.

5-0 out of 5 stars Saved my time and recovered my data
I couldn't get rid of a folder on my 35MB VST Firewire drive. I tried connecting it to my G4 laptop in the hope that I could rid myself of the pesky 'busy' folder, but to no avial all on OS X 3 Panther. Then I went and booted into OS 9.2 hoping I could delete the folder that way. Still, no go. So... I got my trusty Nortons out, tried to fix the disk and I had an awful hang and when I rebooted, the dreaded message came up that the disk was UNREADABLE, initialise or eject was my choice... oh nooooo!!!

So I noticed a trial copy of DiskWarrior Recovery (baby DiskWarrior) on the Nortons boot disk and out of desparation, tried it. Voila, it worked - up came all my precious files and directories which I could no transfer onto the remaining disk space of my 3 Macs. What a relief. I was going to burn CDs to back up the rest of the data I could not fit on the Macs' partitions and then reformat. I was copying files for 3 hours up to 1.30am.

The next morning, I phoned my local reseller who said they had a full DiskWarrior copy in stock. I rushed down and bought it straight away, booted from the CD and in about fifteen minutes, I had the directories fixed, all my files visible and asked it to recover the disk properly and it did!! Oh happy day, now my disk is whirring away, working better and faster than it had previously. The DiskWarrior generated a report said that the directories were "severly damaged" and had to "scavenge" to get the files and folders organised. And it certainly looks like I haven't lost anything, but for the pesky busy folder which has unaccountably disappeared (good riddance).

Nortons' killed my disk, DiskWarrior ressurected it. What more can I say.

1-0 out of 5 stars A frustrating failure for me
For me, Disk Warrior quickly went into a mode where the "barber pole" stopped moving and didn't resume its motion during two attempts at disk repair lasting over a total of 50 hours. The first attempt at repair ended when the computer screen wouldn't wake up after 5 - 10 minutes of mouse and keyboard activation; the second attempt ended after more than 24 hours of running with the appearance of an on-screen message "Press the power keep for several seconds to restart your computer." Norton Utilities is better at telling you if it can't make progress and in giving you an indication of how much progress it is making when it slows down, as when checking media.

5-0 out of 5 stars My Savior!
My computer was to the pont where it was either to erase the hard drive and start all over again or buy Disk Warrior. I didn't want to erase my hd or spend about 90 bucks but in the end it was worth it! Disk Warrior erased all the bad bugs and everything that it had to so I could use my IBOOK again. If in the end it clears everything bad, use it on a weekly bases so nothing bad will come back! I highly recomend Disk Warrior for people with computers that are to the point where you have to erase the hd. Im not garenteeing that it will work, but theres a good chance it will! I LOVE DISK WARRIOR! :-D

5-0 out of 5 stars Saved my data
I am very impressed. My Mac would not boot into OS X or OS 9. Spent an hour on tech support with Apple and tried all the free options first. They suggested Diskwarrior and since I hadn't made a backup recently I was willing to try anything. I bought it at a local retailer and ran it. It started running and I thought it had froze up and wasn't working but after 6 days of running.....yes it took 6 days, my computer is running great now. Although it tool a while it was bettter than redoing all my work. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Program Crashes Very Frequently
I bought this SW to burn VHS source material onto DVDs. Prior to burning, the program performs its rendering of the clips. 9 times out of 10 the program hangs after a few hours of rendering. The one time it did not hang, I killed the program since it was only 10% done with a two hour video after 4 hours of processing. The Product is useless!
I am using Windows XP and have 1 GHz Pentium 4 Processor.

1-0 out of 5 stars There are better options available
I would not recommend the purchase of this product to anyone. It does not perform all of the functions that the packaging leads you to believe. And, tech support is virtually non-existant, so trying to get any assistance from the company is an effort in futility. If you do choose to purchase this product, I sincerely hope that you have better luck than I did. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars This was a waste of money
I should have read the others reviews. This software does not handle multiple identities and multiple users for the same computer. My computer was a mess after using this software. NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of money and time
Well I definitly would not recommend buying this product. It did not move anything I wanted it to and everything I didnt want it to. theres got to be a better solution for transfering files

2-0 out of 5 stars Works....partially
I bought this program chiefly because I had lots of MP3s that I wanted to move to my new iBook from my old PC.I was also glad to get my documents, pictures, etc on the new computer, but what I wanted most was to avoid re-downloading all that music.So of course, I got Move2Mac to move everything except my music.It did not appear to recognize that I had anything in my music folder on my PC, and therefore did not move the hundreds of MP3s.I tried everything I could think of--and spent a good few hours on it--and then gave up.Considering that they advertise that it moves everything including music files, I was pretty annoyed.I don't know whether others have had this problem; maybe I'm the only one.But if you mostly want to move music, there is probably a better and less expensive way!

2-0 out of 5 stars Works well the first time; one-use software
I used Move2Mac to migrate my Windows sytem to my new iMac. Everything worked as it should. However, this software is licensed for one-use only. Detto does not disclose this anywhere on the box (surprise). It will not allow you to install it twice. So, consider connecting Ethernet to Ethernet before buying this product. It is rather expensive considering you will only use it once.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works Great!
I was concerned about how I was going to move my files from my PC to my new iMAC, especially without a CD burner on my PC.Move2Mac worked great, quickly moving the files I designated to my iMAC quickly and with only one minor problem.Just be sure to connect the included cable to the iMAC FIRST..then connect to PC...I had to go onto the Detto web site to find this out after much anxiety...worked great after that!I would highly recommend this product..expecially if that old PC you're replacing doesn't have a CD burner! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Slows down the computer!
The main problem with this software is that it boggs down the computer while you're surfing the net. Pages that used to come down in 3 seconds took 15 seconds or more to come down. I eventually just uninstalled it because it was driving my kid crazy. I bought CyberSitter instead and that's working great.

2-0 out of 5 stars Loaded with features but poor on delivery
If name recognition was all that mattered, Net Nanny would win hands down. It is probably the best known parental control software out there.

But as with anything, name isn't everything.

At first glance, Net nanny is quite impressive. It has a host of features that any parent, seeking to protect their children from pornography and predators on the internet, would find useful. Among them are:

Site blocking, to prevent kids for accessing sites with objectionable or pornographic content. (Net Nanny Contains a long list of prohibited sites which users may add to the list if they wish.); E-mail and Instant Messenger monitoring, to protect against predators; blocking of Newsgroups and file sharing clients; Content blocking and censoring to prevent kids from reading content with objectionable language, including a list of words users can add to; and Internet usage blocking to block out when a child may or may not use the internet. It even has a feature to prevent kids from changing the computer's clock to get around it.

All of these features seemed to work fine for the most part (see below). Web sites on the restricted list were indeed blocked, and the content censoring worked quite well. Net Nanny automatically censors objectionable language as the web pages load, replacing restricted words with Number signs: ########.

Net Nanny's features all are quite useful, but Net Nanny has some downsides more than make up for them. For the record, my computer is an AMD Athlon XP 2100 running Windows 98.

One of the first things I noticed when I started using Net Nanny was that my internet connection suddenly began to lag. The computer I used it on is connected to dial-up, which is not quick to begin with. With Net Nanny installed, pages that had taken 3 seconds to come up before were taking 10 to 15 seconds longer, sometimes more. While this might not seem like much, when a user is doing browsing or web searches, this lag time can add up quickly.

In addition, some web pages didn't even come up at all, instead showing a blank internet window, causing me to have to hit the refresh button to get the page to load properly. This wasn't for sites with objectionable content; this was for normal sites that Net Nanny should have had no problem with. While this problem didn't happen for most page loads, it happened often enough that it became a nuisance.

What was even worse than clean sites not loading properly was Net Nanny's tendency to allow pages to be shown, even though they had objectionable content. Net Nanny would give a warning message and proceed to load the page anyway. Sometimes it would display the message on a completely innocent website with no objectionable content at all, leaving me bewildered, wondering what was wrong with it. This only happened with sites that were not on Net Nanny's list of restricted sites. Restricted sites WERE blocked properly, but since sites with objectionable content on the net are endless, this understandably made me wonder if it was working properly. I'm not sure if this was an intentional design feature (to get around blocking innocent sites l;ike news reports, etc) or a flaw in the program itself.

Another issue I came across is that Net Nanny appears to slow down the computer altogether. Whenever the machine accessed the internet, my mouse stuttered across the screen. Other programs acted in much the same manner, making multitasking difficult and annoyingly jumpy. This problem was perhaps the most aggravating of what I've listed so far, and enough to make me uninstall the program.

Worst of all, now that I've removed Net Nanny from my computer, some of these issues are still occuring. I had no problem prior to installing Net Nanny, so I can only assume it left pieces of itself on my computer.

Bottom line, look for a parental control program other than Net Nanny. It's not worth the aggravation. I know that I wish I'd checked for reviews before I bought it. It seems that I'm not alone with these issues.

1-0 out of 5 stars Awful
This program is awful. It is not worth the money. My parents bought this programme for me and my younger brother, and I do not think its worth it. Since then, they have turned it off my user and told me the password, so I use it for my brother- but say when I was using word to write a world war two project, and I typed in "bomb" it closed the program down, and when I typed in the password, nothing happens. It just closes the program down and wont let me back in. I dont reccomed buying this programme! There is alot of better programmes which are cheaper!

2-0 out of 5 stars Beware
Beware! I'm a teenager whose parents set this program up to protect me. It's a nightmare! It constantly pops up messages that say a site is inappropriate for me, but then it lets me in anyway. There usually is absolutely nothing bad about the site, either. Sometimes it lets me into sites that I do think are bad without complaints. Net Nanny will also display its logo across the whole screen saying the site is blocked, but let me in if I reload the site! Also, it will block out sites that I know aren't bad because it had let me into the site before. The worse thing of all, however, has to be the fact that Net Nanny will delete its memory. My father told it to allow me into a site, but then it would begin to complain. When we checked, its memory was cleaned out. It deleted its own memory! My parents, thankfully, let me have an adult's log. It sometimes blocks adults out of sites! I've seen it block my mother out of credit union sites. It also will display messages that say 'Net Nanny cannot begin filtering until someone logs in.' But someone IS logged in!


2-0 out of 5 stars Good features, terrible side effects
After downloading this software, there was a noticeable negative impact to our computer. Lock ups almost constantly, slow internet speed, and even slower response on other PC applications that should not have been impacted by this program. We were running this on a Windows 98 OS with a PIII 600mhz computer and 128m RAM. Rather disappointing.

I like this program's features but not at the expense of having to re-boot my computer constantly. I'd look elsewhere for a good Internet Protection software program. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid
Overpriced and underpowered..... This software is more annoying then anything else. You practically have to turn off every setting to get your networked printers and network games to work, for example.

1-0 out of 5 stars A poorly designed product
It took me a day to install this product. If you do choose to use this product be sure to uninstall all other norton virus and internet security products even tho the instructions say that norton 2003 is uninstalled automatically--it isin't!! My computer now crashes frequently since I began using this product. My advice is to stay clear of this product until they get it fixed. One other point--don't count on getting any technical help form Symantec--they don't even have decent free help installing the product let alone using it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stay as far away from this as you can....
I recommended this for my father based on my experience with previous versions. I wish I'd done some research first....

My father installed it on his desktop (a Dell running WinME) without any problems. When the system asked him to reboot, he said he'd do it later because it was late, and simply shut down the computer. The next morning he discovered the worst.

When he tried to boot up the computer, it started booting up normally, but when it got to his desktop, that's all he got - a blank desktop. No icons, no start menu, nothing. In fact, CTRL-ALT-DEL shows that nothing is running. Weird huh? Even weirder is that when he tried to go into 'Safe Mode', the exact same thing happens. I'm not sure what NIS 2004 did to his computer, but nothing short of reinstalling his entire system would get it to boot up.

Now comes the fun part - Symantec Technical Support and Customer Service. They don't exist. The only free tech support they have is email based, and run by people in India, who apparently don't speak English. I sent them email after email telling them that the system wouldn't boot up, and every time the sent back replies telling me to go to the 'Start Menu' and go here and there and do this and that. The just didn't get the fact that I couldn't load Windows.

So, I thought I'd give them a call to complain about the terrible tech support. I looked up their number on the internet and called. I got routed around the country to different phone systems, and then sat on hold for over two hours before I finally got frustrated enough to hang up and write the Better Business Bureau. Needless to say, I won't be installing this product on my own computer, and unless Symantec makes some major changes to the base program, won't be buying any more of their products.

If you're a computer guru, you might be able to get it to work, in which case this is a good program. The problem is, I'm a computer guru, and I couldn't make it work...

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money
This software won't allow my computer to access the internet. No email gets through. All web pages are inaccessible. When the problem first occurred, I disabled the software to go to Symantec's website and followed Symantec's automated online instructions to configure it. This fixed the problem for the rest of that day, but then the problem recurred the next time I rebooted. Symantec's human tech support is $30 per incident! Why should I throw bad money after good? I'm writing this off as a $40 mistake. You're better off with a $40 router and/or some freeware security software. Norton Anti-Virus may be pretty good, but the rest of this Internet Security package sucks.

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in California
I have been a Norton Internet Security user for years with total satisfaction. Upgrading to the 2004 version has nearly destroyed my Microsoft Outlook - it took hours to get back my previous Emails and more importantly my Address Book. It is still not as it was, but at least I can see everything. My Freecell is totally unusable. Also having problems with Word. The Symantec website has many articles to read to 'fix' what is broken by uploading the product. Too bad they didn't put as much effort into fixing it. I'm deleting this version from my computer and moving to something that will work! ... Read more
