  • It was a promo carried by Ashampoo that made me the owner of a 1-year license. I thought “10 dollars for 1 year of testing a new product isn’t a lump sum”. I did not expect much from Ashampoo Anti-malware v1.21 because it’s relatively unknown and definitely suffers from lack of exposure. However, Ashampoo does something that Microsoft Security Essentials and SUPERAntiSpyware don’t – it chimes and unfolds a warning from the tray icon when an archive containing an infected file is being unpacked. I mean, no matter what is being extracted from archive .ZIP of .RAR, Ashampoo detects files which are not actively doing any harm. MSE and SAS keep silence. It doesn’t mean Ashampoo is superior to them, I just point this out. In terms of user interface superantispyware is more robust, easier to navigate. My biggest complaint is the Internet menu, it contains too many links to Ashampoo website. Removing a bunch of links (menu options) would make it neater, cleaner, less cluttered. Ashampoo also uses 100% CPU while it’s loading itself after logging on to Windows desktop. Although I know it’s not a problem for modern computers (I’m on Pentium III 1,4 Ghz), superantispyware loads much faster. As for detection, Ashampoo detected loads of infections in my ‘test crap folder’ where superantispyware found only a couple of nasties. Again, this is accounted for Ashampoo being antivirus+antispyware, 2-in-1 that is. SAS is aimed at other threats, and is not a solution for complete protection.
    So, in terms of overall protection, I think Ashampoo isn’t bad at all when purchased cheap (like $10). However, GFI Vipre may be a better deal on Black Friday when it is sold at approximately same price.
