SuperAntiSpyware you are able not only to detect spyware, but to remove Rootkits, Trojans and others. An anti-Trojans device is also able to suggest viruses, spyware and other kinds of malware removing.

These PC protection devices are more accordingly to be classified as anti-malware software rather than to be grouped by the name of the devices.

According to design, the online database and the computer infectiousness, some anti-malware programs can detect more malware than the others in spite of their ratings in the review presented.
