  • [2.Bi-Weekly]IObit Security 360 vs SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition vs Spyware Doctor

    Scanning Speed Comparison


    Operating System: Windows XP Professional SP3
    Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4000+
    RAM: 1 GB
    Hard Disk: Two Partitions, Total Size 250 GB, Free 81 GB

    I tested only the scanning speed of the applications, because I didn't have any malware samples. All of the compared were free versions, all were up to their latest core versions and all were at the same environment conditions.

    3. Spyware Doctor

    Spyware Doctor's version is The Intelli-scan took 3 minutes and 47 seconds and the Full scan took 1 hour, 2 minutes and 31 seconds to complete.

    2. SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition

    SUPERAntiSpyware is version 4.29.1002. It's Quick scan finished in 18 minutes and 15 seconds and the Complete scan finished for 35 minutes and 16 seconds.

    1. IObit Security 360

    IObit's Security 360 is also to it's latest version - 1.01. The Smart scan was a little slower than PC Tools' product - 4 minutes and 52 seconds, but the Full scan was again the fastest of all - 16 minutes and 56 seconds.

    Note: At the end of both Spyware Doctor's scans, I got a message, which was urging me to buy it. The message was telling me that the trial version only finds infections, but to disinfect them I should buy the full version. So I guess that Spyware Doctor is out of the freeware race, which means that Security 360 wins again.
