Spyware Terminator is a surprisingly powerful security tool that offers many ways to keep your system malware-free.
The program has three operating modes, for example. Select "scan for spyware" and it'll run on-demand scans only; choose "protect against spyware" and you'll also get real-time antispyware protection; select "Protect against spyware and viruses" and Spyware Terminator will integrate with ClamAV for comprehensive protection against all malware types.
You're also able to decide how involved you'd like to be in Spyware Terminator's decisions. Choose the Basic shield and the program automatically blocks all threats, so you'll see only the minimum of alerts. But if you like to take more control of your own security, opt for the Advanced shield and Spyware Terminator will leave all the important decisions to you.
And there are plenty of additional tools and options to keep you infection free. If asked Spyware Terminator can track your Windows Startup programs, monitor your services and drivers, and check web browser add-ons as they're installed. Other filters monitor your browser settings, winsock configuration and hosts file, while Web Security Guard scans your favourites to make sure you're not visiting dangerous websites.
Plenty of functionality, then, but you don't have to use it all: Spyware Terminator is supremely configurable, and it's easy to turn off features that you don't need, or perhaps clash with other security programs you're using already.
Please note: while the spyware scanner works with 32 and 64-bit Windows, real-time protection is strictly 32-bit only.
