CounterSpy is a proprietary spyware removal program for Microsoft Windows software developed by Sunbelt Software.

Features[edit]

CounterSpy scans a PC for spyware, examining files on the hard drive, objects in memory, the Windows registry and cookies and it has a capability called DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) that, according to Sunbelt, improves the chances of killing off resuscitators.[1] In the past, the tool was based on and used GIANT AntiSpyware's engine. The program is currently at version 3.1. Sunbelt Software released version 2, which includes a revamped interface and smaller memory footprint.[2]

Available for download is a 15-day trial version.

Effective May 23, 2011, CounterSpy will be discontinued and no longer available for purchase. [3]
