SUPERAntiSpyware is a powerful anti-malware for Windows. We have been using it for many years and it has always found some or other malicious program that managed to slip under the radar of other giants of the security world. This is why it is well suited as a secondary layer of defense for Windows computers.
For having a near-ideal protection for your Windows PC, what you can do is install a full antivirus software such as Avast Antivirus, ESET Internet Security, or Bitdefender Internet Security. And then for extra defense, we can also install SUPERAntiSpyware and then you can have complete peace of mind. Obviously, you should also get in the habit of keeping regular backups of your important files and having updated versions of all the software.
When SUPERAntiSpyware is installed, it also installs a right-click context-menu item that helps you quickly scan your system for suspicious or malicious files. You can right-click on any file or folder or a group of files and then choose to scan that file (or folder). You can also securely delete that file. While this is a really good option to have, you can easily disable or enable it.
Here is how you can toggle the context-menu scan for SUPERAntiSpyware on Windows PC:
- Launch SUPERAntiSpyware and then click on System Tools.
- Click on the Preferences under the System Tools and Program Settings window.
- Now you can select or de-select the checkbox labeled Enable right-click file options in Explorer.
Even when you have turned off SUPERAntiSpyware right-click options for Windows File Explorer, it continues to provide you full protection. We can either enable the real-time scanning of your system files and other items, or we can manually scan the system from time to time. In either situation, it will be able to find that small pesky malicious program that could have stayed undetected from your classic antivirus software.
