3.8

It offers a pleasing using interface and an easy-to-use design. However when compared to some of the leading antivirus programs, XoftSpy Antiviru Pro simply does not measure up.

Caused new laptop to crash twice!

After downloading this program, my Laptop became super slow. i.e. about 4 minutes for a new screen to appear. The only way to correct the problem was to restore to factory new settings. The second time around....downloaded this program again and my laptop immediately went into super slow functioning a second time? Had to restore to factory new settings again! The company gave me a refund.

Pros
have none
Cons
Crashed my laptop twice.

XoftSpy Antivirus Pro ( donwloaded 4. April 2013 )

1. It was no good idea NOT to allow that either only Malware or only Viruses protection can be enabled, but both
functions MUST be used together. So the program can´t be combined with a different Antivirus- resp.a different
Anti-Malware program.

2. XoftSpy Antivirus Pro can switched on / off with a few commands, that means it is completely worthless
( see batch file below, tested in XP SP3 ). If the program is shut off this way the icon remains in the tray until it is ( accidently ) hovered by the mouse. So the may think the program is still working even though it is cancelled: a welcome practice for a hacker ...

WE CANNOT RECOMMEND XoftSpy Antivirus Pro / the above version TO OUR CLIENTS

( The rating 1 for FEATURES / EFFECTIVENESS / SUPPORT was only used as there is no possiblity to enter
"No rating", as we didn´t want to waste more time for testing )

"*****code hidden for security*****"

Pros
none
Cons
