Spy Sweeper Review

Webroot Spy Sweeper with AntiVirus removes and blocks spyware and viruses
A review of Spy Sweeper by Fernando Ortega

Is your computer infected with a nasty spyware application or a hard-to-remove virus? Webroot introduces Spy Sweeper with AntiVirus, a popular application to help protect and/or remove malware from your PC.

Webroot Spyware Sweeper sports an interactive and simple interface, and performs tasks such as scans and removal with surprisingly excellent speed. Webroot is also a pretty popular application with some pretty hot user reviews and success stories.

When we compared Norton, McAfee and Webroot side-by-side, Webroot came out the winner hands-down.

While the actual title of the program might mislead you into believing that the program is mainly an anti-spyware application muchlike AdAware, the AntiVirus side might actually be the winner in this case, because Webroot manages to pack both powerful tools into one, something long overdue and also something the bigger names haven't managed to really pull off yet.

Most AntiVirus programs start to bog down your computer when running in the background and especially when scanning. This wasn't the case with Webroot's Spy Sweeper and AntiVirus application. The program also manages to help protect users from Phishing attempts to rogue programs attempting to make your system unsecure.

We're pleased to list Webroot on CC, mainly because it does many things that a typical AntiVirus application won't do.

Webroot Spy Sweeper with AntiVirus is licensed as Shareware for the Windows operating system / platform from anti spyware software and can be used as a free trial until the trial period ends (after an unspecified number of days). The Webroot Spy Sweeper with AntiVirus demo is available to all software users as a free download with potential restrictions and is not necessarily the download of the full version.
