Using an antivirus tool is almost mandatory these days, but it may not be enough to fully protect your system from online threats.

SpyCatcher completes the layer of protection created by other security tools such as an antivirus and a firewall. This effective app scans the computer for spyware, adware, Trojans and any other undesirable elements that may have invaded your system, even without you noticing. There's only one type of scan available, though it can be scheduled to run automatically.

Besides scanning, SpyCatcher also protects your computer with special filters with which you can allow or block specific applications, based on the program itself or on the developer. Plus SpyCatcher is constantly monitoring the system's behavior for actions that are commonly associated with spyware – something that may result in the program being a bit too protective: it even tried to block my screenshot tool while testing it!

SpyCatcher is quick, effective and easy to use. The only thing I missed was having more configuration options than just the ones you find under the Advanced tab – and which didn't seem that "advanced" to me at all.

With SpyCatcher you can scan your computer for spyware, adware, Trojans and other elements, and keep it protected from possible future threats.

SpyCatcher is an advanced anti-spyware tool. SpyCatcher's comprehensive database detects tens of thousands of spyware, adware, trojans and worms, from the most common to the most obscure, and SpyCatcher updates itself automatically to provide immediate protection from the latest danger.

SpyCatcher is the only anti-spyware product with a Reinstall Shield that defends against advanced, aggressive spyware programs which silently reinstall after deletion. SpyCatcher's Protector watches your computer for running spyware and alerts you immediately when new spyware is installed, and you can run full sweeps automatically using the built-in Scheduler.

SpyCatcher's extensive online encyclopedia lets you read about the threat a program represents, ways you may have contracted it and statistics on how many other users have encountered it. SpyCatcher's Detective feature lets you see all the hidden programs on your computer and easily remove any you don't want. SpyCatcher even disguises disabled adware as "active" to trick some ad-dependent software into running even though its threat has been eliminated.

SpyCatcher is an easy and powerful way to protect yourself from the many malicious programs that bypass anti-virus software and firewalls - don't go online without it!
