SpyWarrior is a new anti-malware program developed by Lithuanian company Kibernetinio Saugumo Sistemos. It’s a security program that will guard computers against malicious threats of all types, including serious infections like trojans and ransomware. It’s currently available for Windows computers only but another version will likely be released in the future.
SpyWarrior is an anti-virus program so its primary focus is to protect your computer from malicious threats. Real-time protection will stop all known threats before they can properly enter your computer and cause damage. Malware that’s already present on the computer will also be detected and dealt with accordingly. SpyWarrior can detect a wide range of malicious threats, including spyware, viruses, trojans, keyloggers, rootkits, and even ransomware. SpyWarrior also appears to excel at detecting less serious threats like adware, browser hijackers, and potentially unwanted programs. These infections, while very annoying, are not particularly serious, so it’s not uncommon for larger anti-virus vendors to not detect them. But since SpyWarrior has a large database of such threats, it will be able to detect them with no issue. In general, SpyWarrior’s threat database seems quite extensive and is regularly updated, so there should be no issues with the detection of even recently-released threats.
One of SpyWarrior’s most important features is ransomware protection. Ransomware is a very severe threat, and infection can mean permanent loss of files/data. It’s incredibly easy to pick up ransomware but very difficult to deal with once it’s already inside. Thus, having an anti-virus program that has protection against ransomware is highly important. SpyWarrior will not only detect already-present ransomware infections if you’re currently dealing with one but also prevent ransomware from entering in the future. Artificial intelligence technology will detect any attempts of file encryption and stop the process before it’s too late.
SpyWarrior’s Help Desk is another great feature. If the program is unable to detect some threat on your computer that’s causing issues, you can use this feature to contact SpyWarrior’s technicians. They would develop a custom solution and apply it directly to SpyWarrior, which would allow the program to remove the infection.
In addition to the offered features, how well it performs alongside other programs is important to consider. In the past, anti-virus programs had a bad reputation for negatively impacting a computer’s performance, rightfully so. They used to hog computer’s resources, which caused computers to lag and crash to the point that they were unusable while a scan was being performed. However, this is no longer an issue nowadays unless users use older computers that do not work well in general.
SpyWarrior is quite a lightweight program so its presence shouldn’t be noticeable. Whether it’s actively scanning for malware on the computer or merely monitoring for incoming threats, there shouldn’t be any disruptions to your regular computer use. The program itself does not lag, and scans do not take a long time to complete.
When choosing an anti-virus program, it’s important to consider how difficult the program is to use. Users of all tech skill levels use anti-virus programs so it’s essential that these programs are straightforward. Otherwise, users will either choose a different program or not use one at all. And those users probably need to use such programs the most.
Design-wise, SpyWarrior is a rather modern-looking program with a dark theme. The program was designed with simplicity in mind so it’s very user-friendly and easy to navigate. Launching a scan is easy, changing settings and turning features on/off is not difficult either. The official website also has detailed instructions on how to download and activate the program, as well as how to purchase a subscription in case users have a difficult time.
It is not a free program but it does offer a SpyWarrior limited free version. If you download the free SpyWarrior version, you would be able to scan your computer for threats. To be able to revoke any detected threats, you’d need to buy one of the subscriptions. But you can test out the program with the SpyWarrior 7-day free trial. The free trial is activated when you purchase either the 1-year or 2-year plans. You will gain access to the program for free for 7 days, after which you will be charged the full amount. If you decide you do not want to use the program, you need to cancel before the 7-day free trial ends.
As we already mentioned, SpyWarrior is a paid program. To unlock the full features, you need to buy a subscription. You have three options, though they do not differ in features, only in subscription length. All plans allow you to use the program on up to 5 devices. If you want to pay on a monthly basis, the 1-month plan costs €10/month. The 1-year plan currently has a 51% discount, so you would be billed €59/year (€4.92/month). The 2-year plan has a 67% discount so you would be billed €79/two years (€3.29/month). Like with all anti-virus programs, SpyWarrior subscriptions renew automatically. If you’re not satisfied with the program, you need to cancel the subscription before you are charged again.
While SpyWarrior is a newly released program, it’s still a powerful anti-malware tool. It can detect a wide range of threats, ranging from spyware to ransomware. Real-time protection will stop any malware attempts to get in, ransomware protection will stop file encryption, and the help desk feature will help when SpyWarrior cannot remove a threat automatically. Overall, SpyWarrior is a great choice as it’s lightweight but powerful enough to deal with a wide range of infections, including ransomware. It has a great design and is easy to use, so it’s perfect for users of all skill levels. While it’s not the cheapest program out there, the offered discounts make it more than affordable.
