Hi All, just wondered if anybody had heard of XoftSpy, supposed to be a anti-everything program.
Was checking up on a possible virus on behalf of a friend, and when I put so-called virus name into Google it came up with this 'download me' type of program to clean my computer of nasties etc etc etc.
I have never heard of XoftSpy so am being a bit wary.

Cheers TT

Hi.Yes I used it for years but could not afford to renew it.But it is sadly missed.I would recommend it.A very good security program,and worth having.

I have used it for two years now and would compare it to Ad-Aware (which is free in basic mode).

It appears to find more problems (such as data miners) and is probably worth the low subsciption.

Auto-updates are available online.
