Anti-Spyware comes with many useful features, including a description and threat level for detected spyware and adware, but the program still doesn't offer real-time protection, which stops spyware from ever entering your computer system.

When tested, we found that Anti-Spyware missed quite a lot of spyware and adware. We also discovered Anti-Spyware often presented false positives. This means the program claimed an innocent program was spyware or adware. This is inconvenient, because if you remove these innocent programs as Anti-Spyware advises, you can cause serious harm to your computer. Conveniently ParetoLogic provides a "view details" section that takes you directly to their dictionary and explains the source, nature and threat of its findings.

ParetoLogic Anti Spyware Summary:
7/10

ParetoLogic Anti-Spyware is fairly powerful, easy-to-use software, but its poor detection abilities coupled with an unflattering number of false positives lowered its overall ranking.
