Scan quikcly. Doesn't slow down PC and use system resources.Simple to use.
Doesn't detect spyware properly. Extremely poor spyware detection.

XoftSpy offers an easy-to-use anti-spyware solution with all the power and functionality of more complicated programs. XoftSpy detects and removes adware, spyware, keyloggers, worms, Trojans, browser hijackers and a host of other threats.

XoftSpy has been created by Paretologic, a well-known anti-spyware company. It has a clean interface, but it isn't as user friendly as you would think.

Last month, I tried out XoftSpy to see if it worked. After installation, Xoftspy was able to quikcly load withjout using system resource or hogging up memory.

When I tried the scan, however, it went too fast for me to actually think it could up any spyware. To my amazement, though not a lot, it was able to detect some forms of spyware, especially the memory installed spywares.

XoftSpy updates quickly, but not regularly.

The interface is also a bit of a problem. It took me some time to understand how to set the settings and updates and by that time, and by that time I could have used another anti-spyware software to do my work.


While XoftSpy has a quick engine that loads up at system start-up and doesn't use up system memory and resources, it still is downgraded by its bad user-interface, extremely poor scanning and dection of spyware.
