Our Review:

SUPERAntiSpyware (SAS) is worth a try as well. In addition to its focus on detecting and removing spyware infections, this program deals with trojans and other types of threats such as diallers, keyloggers, worms, rootkits, etc.

It supports a quick scan, complete system scan or custom scan with trust items and exclude folders. The program also provides an option to check for latest definition updates before scanning to protect you from the newest threats. SAS also has a Trojan Threat List shown here. There are 100 examples of different dll and exe files, all of which should not be allowed to run on your PC. Clicking on any of the items in the list will give you a more detailed description of that particular threat.

Among other features, it includes Hi-Jack Protection which prevents other applications (excluding Task Manager) from terminating the program.
