Quite good

Well this one is kinda nice with it's scans. Though the UI could use a make-over. I use this one with Avast, and Spysweeper. If the UI was better, then I would rate it more, but then again, you get what you pay for.

Not a replacement but to be used in conjunction with the other known good anti-maleware programs.

Its free so I don't expect it to catch everything but its definitely a good FREE APP for those that have nothing.

This has been quite stable on my system. Like all the other popular free scanner/removers available it does not detect everything but is still worthy to use. Just because Adaware finds something Spybot Search and Destroy does not, should not imply Spybot Search and Destroy is not an essential piece of software. Same goes for this program. It has found instances that both SBSD and Adaware have failed to find during tests I have conducted. In relation to an earlier comment about real time protection Arovax has had for some time http://www.arovaxshield.com/ which is a good start in stand-alone "Immunization" products. When used in conjunction with each other they provide a Realtime/Scanner/Remover.

Nice interface, simple to use it but it's database is outdated now.
It lacks real-time protection and heuristics protection.
Waiting for the upcoming release soon.
Still fan of Arovax products and devoted tester!

Ewido is 30 bucks!! This is free and tracking cookies can be cleared by cleaning the cache and other areas of the pc.Ccleaner is good for that and spybot is much better than ''ewido'' ...Adware also beats that program out of the water..

This one right here is pretty good but needs work..Sorry to the person below but i give respect and support to free programs..If it worked great and cost,I wouldn't buy it.I have more useful things to waste my money on and patience for the free programs/dev's..

SPEAK IT Sophist_Dreams. Amen sister. About time someone got off the BS train Arovax seems to have lately. Spyware Terminator pwns this so bad it's not laugh worthy. Build in Clam-AV with a Spyware database + Intrusion Protection and you've got an Arovax killing machine.

I'm lovin' it! And for those who are like 'It's free, lets show respect'...ummmm no? You know why? Because it's not worth money, nobody would buy it if it cost something. No features, not a great spyware database...selling it pointless as they'd be in the same situation they are now. And lets face it...there are more capable 'FREE' scanners.

Ad-Aware
Spyware Doctor (Free Realtime Offer)
Windows Defender

If you want to compete Arovax, stop being a POS and add realtime protection and heuristics along with a more filling database. THAT would be a great free product. Till then you'll always have the likes of Spyware Terminator (once rogue!) embarassing you.

I wish people would just rate software based on it how it works. It is a nice addition to Spybot, Ad-Aware and a free antivirus program like AVG. Companies that offer these nice freeware programs and support communities should be applauded.

For the guy below (learn to read) from the Arovax site:
[ 17.06.2006 ] ...... Arovax AntiSpyware 2.0 Release (Free) is available for download!
[ 12.11.2005 ] ...... Arovax AntiSpyware 1.0 Beta (Free) is available for download!
[ 01.10.2005 ] ....................................... Grand opening of Arovax AntiSpyware.

I've been using this for a while, and it makes a nice compliment to Ad-Aware SE, Sybot S&D, Spyware Blaster and windows Defender.

I Also Like how they finally included the options of not installing the icon everywhere, and to exit and not minimise after close. They also Intergrated Live update within the program.

I've been using Arovax products for a long time already. Both Arovax Shield & Antispyware. What I can say is that these guys are going towards their goals with 7-miles steps. All their products are innovative, effective yet very easy to use. I am really very glad about the fact that Arovax Antispyware is finally released and is constantly developed. Its Scan speeds are REAL! It’s not a bug, it’s an innovation no one can beat yet. Both Scans are now united into one System Scan, because there is no need in “Quick” scan, full system scan speed can be compared to someone’s quick scans ;) Very clean and cozy GUI. It does not stress you or overwhelm with tons of settings. I really like it a lot.
Remember my words – it’s a winner who will knock-out some major players on the market. Good job Arovax!

I usually do not take part in such discussions/posts, but this time I decided to write a comment. I use this software since its first beta releases. There are always people who like something, there are always people who do not like something and we all should realize that it is very hard to please everyone. I'd even say that it is impossible. I give this software a solid 5 mark only for one thing - Innovations, which Arovax tries to deliver to its users and also for their endless efforts in helping pc users for free, though other companies earn good money on people's troubles.
Recently Arovax wrote about their new system which gives all users an access to the functions of controlling database of malware/spyware, where everyone is able to add information about known infections (see details here http://forum.arovaxcompa...index.php?showtopic=368) I liked this idea very much. I think that further developing of this idea making it more user-friendly would be very good. I am staying with Arovax and I really hope that each of you will evaluate the product yourselves, not by relying on comments of people who are not familiarized with this field and whose hobby is to flame.
