Cloudswave Score for SpyBot Search and Destroy
Rating based on 4 Critic Reviews

Taking all of this into consideration, SpyBot - Search & Destroy is a handy real-time protection solution against malware, with reliable spyware detection and disinfection capabilities. However, it is important to note here that the computer’s performance is going to be hampered, as CPU and memory usage is quite high during most processes.
If you have spyware or malware on your computer, your first step should be to download Spybot. This free detection tool is among the most trusted, and it's the ideal first step when you suspect a problem or want to ensure future problems don't create headaches.

Spybot was one of the first antispyware tools ever. It's been dormant for a while. Now Spybot - Search & Destroy 2.0 promises to destroy "spyware, malware, adware and other malicious software." In testing, it proved almost 100 percent ineffective.
-Easy installation on malware-infested test systems.
-Extremely poor detection of malware.
-Extremely poor removal of detected malware.
-Even worse removal of rootkits in particular.
-Many user interface elements significantly awkward.

The improvement I’ve seen in the new version of TeaTimer and the scanning performance of Spybot – S&D is a big welcome! However, the detection is so poor that I cannot recommend Spybot as the best option when dealing with an infected PC. I will only recommend using Spybot S&D if a user wants to know whether another malware scanner missed anything. That said, Spybot is nonetheless an excellent spyware killer - so do use it, but not as your first or only line of defence.
