    Don't post things multiple times... Your question was already answered:
    Never heard of it... and that's typically not a good thing, especially when there are known good and proven alternatives:

    MalwareBytes
    Spybot S&D
    Ad-Aware

    Sounds like a phoney. I personally would go for my combination of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and Avira Antivirus.

    One word about SpyBot - it uses a different method to detecting malware than most software - instead of scanning every file, it has a signature of 3/4 of a million malware and scans for each one. Naturally this means it's useless to new malware or morphological malware. I discovered that last week after dealing with a computer with a single malware on it (rogue anti-virus malware - pretended to be 28 other viruses and offer to clean it for a fee) that it could not detect (even when I told it to specifically scan the folder that I knew it was in - my uncommon sense is superior to SpyBot).

    Note the difference between viruses and malware.

    EDIT: I should also mention that Ad-Aware has been getting less effective over the last few years. I used to love it (it was the only program I used up until I got a free version of Kaspersky), but I've noticed how more and more malware would be missed by its scans. Malwarebytes is more effective now.

    SUPER is legit and good.

    The reason it's not heard of is because shortly after it came out Malwarebytes eclipsed it.

    Super Anti Spywares/Malwarebytes & Combo fix tend to be some of the top choices for enthusiasts. so +1
