This isn’t just marketing hype, either – just about every area of the new build has been enhanced and improved.
This starts with the revamped interface, which no longer hides its functionality behind a host of buttons. Easier access to key features means you can now launch the scan you need in a couple of clicks.
A new Critical Point Scan checks for only the most serious issues, enabling the program to deliver feedback in as little as 20 seconds. A Rescue Scan aims to recover even the most heavily infected systems, and SUPERAntiSpyware’s faster core engine should now deliver better performance across the board.
SUPERAntiSpyware’s Professional Edition sees enhanced real-time protection, and a more configurable scheduler for better control of scanning and definition updates.
But both the Free and Professional Edition benefit from clearer logs and scanning details, ZIP archive scanning, and a greater ability to repair the damage done by malware. In addition, a 30% cut in definition file size makes for faster updates, and while it was always lightweight, the program as a whole now requires even fewer system resources.
Some of this is really just a matter of playing “catch up”, as SUPERAntiSpyware hasn’t seen a major update in quite some time. There is a lot to like about this release, though, and if you’re looking for something to complement your existing security package then really should be on your shortlist.
SUPERAntiSpyware is a freeware product for Windows XP and higher. To get a copy, pay a visit to our downloads page.
