SPYWAREfighter is a handy application created to detect and remove spyware, Trojans, rootkits, worms, dialers, and other types of malware from your system.
It works perfectly fine in conjunction with your existing antivirus solution and can detect, block and eliminate the kind of threats that your default antivirus solution can miss. Using SPYWAREfighter, besides your updated antivirus, ensures a high level of security for your system and lets you rest assured that your data are tightly protected.

One of i the main advantages is its accuracy. the program manages to achieve a high level of reliability due to the fact that it uses heuristic detection as well, though the main scanning engine is based on signature updates.

Though the app’s powerful and reliable, it’s also simple and easy-to-use. Its neat and intuitive interface causes no problems to any kind of users, even if they are complete beginners.

Furthermore, the software’s lightweight, resource-friendly and unobtrusive as it will silently reside in the tray area most of the time, protecting your system against spyware from there without bothering you in any way.

SPYWAREfighter might have been my favorite antimalware application if it weren’t for its awful scanning speed. As mentioned in the previous reviews, this tool takes a lot of time to complete a system scan, even when the “quick scan mode” is selected. It seems this issue hasn’t been fixed yet. Anyway, despite this flaw, SPYWAREfighter is still a remarkable antispyware protection tool that makes every penny of its price be completely justified.
