SpywareGuard provides a real-time protection solution against spyware that is a great addition to SpywareBlaster's protection method.

An anti-virus program scans files before you open them and prevents execution if a virus is detected - SpywareGuard does the same thing, but for spyware! And you can easily have an anti-virus program running alongside SpywareGuard.

Features Listing:
  • Fast scanning engine
  • Scans exe and cab files - the two most popular file types for distributing spyware
  • Signature-based scanning - for known spyware (list)
  • Heuristic/generic detection capabilities - some spyware programs can be detected even if the code undergoes significant changes
  • Small size - with a small size and small definition sizes, download and updates are quick
  • SG Control Panel - provides easy access to help and integration options
  • SG LiveUpdate - provides an easy updating solution
  • Spyware files are blocked before being opened or run - they are not simply shut down after they are loaded in memory (and after they have performed their tasks)
  • The full path to the spyware executable is provided on the alert screen
  • Once a spyware file is detected and blocked from running, the options are provided to either continue or to delete the spyware file
  • It's a free download

SpywareGuard is freeware / donationware.

It costs considerable time and money to keep SpywareGuard updated. All I (the author) ask is that you make a donation if you like the program and are able to do so.
