An important magazine that compared Anti-spyware products rated CounterSpy V2 as #2, and as a best value.
They revamped their testing methods from last year to reflect reality better, and the results show. CounterSpy's quality got confirmed, as now we come out as #2. Number one is $30.00 a year though. CounterSpy is $20.00 the first year, and $15.00 the second, almost half of #1's price over two years. And if you buy CounterSpy's 2-year subscription up front, it's exactly half of number one, and you will still get world-class, weapons-grade protection. Other competitors like Spyware Doctor 5.0 and Spy Sweeper 5.3 did not even make it in the Top 5.

You want 24/7 protection, and you don't want to notice it. You want the spyware definition updates to be short, and not interfere with your other work. CounterSpy gets you what you want! Version 2 has been rated better than the competition by the major independent reviews. And award-winning CounterSpy has a new secret weapon: the VIPRE™ anti-malware technology protects you against today's increasingly complex malware threats.
Now, the most menacing spyware, rootkits, and blended malware threats have no place to hide! With CounterSpy V2's revolutionary new design you get faster, more effective spyware scans and real-time protection that removes even the deepest rooted malware from your PC.
There is a problem with some freeware you might run...
Since no one wants to spend money they don't have to, you might be running free Anti-spyware like Ad-Aware and/or SpyBot. That's where the problem comes in! Unfortunately, by now these products simply don't cut it anymore. Recent reviews show that over time they have fallen behind significantly. They just don't catch the really bad stuff any more. To illustrate the point, SpyBot recently only got 3 Stars at Download.com, and Ad-Aware just got 2 from PC Magazine. In this case it is true that with freeware "you get what you pay for". You absolutely need better, weapons-grade Anti-spyware against soaring Internet crime.
