    Our Verdict

    SPAMfighter excels in many areas, including spyware detection and anti-phishing. On top of preventing spam, it can also optimize your devices. If you operate a small to midsize business, you’ll find this product especially useful.

    It comes with many free tools like anti-spam, antivirus, and spyware fighter, which are effective protection methods. One problem with this is that all these features work independently of each other. Don’t expect a fluid integration between the tools as when you’re using mainstream AV like McAfee and Trend Micro.

    The anti-spam feature has some problems of its own. There’s no guarantee that it always labels the actual malicious content. You’ll experience randomness to the detecting pattern. This results in users having to manually double-check their spam folder, which defeats the purpose.

    Overview of SPAMfighter

    SPAMfighter is a computer utility and security platform that detects and eliminates spam mails. Its uses go beyond email protection. You can use it for spyware and phishing prevention.

    This software can also optimize and update your devices, making them perform faster. Driver updates and disk space recovery are essential add-ons you want for your operations.

    How to Set It Up and Uninstall

    There are two branches of service available: personal and business. Each of them has a different installation process. 

    For personal use, there are three components of security: Spamfghter, Virusfighter, and Spywarefighter. For optimal experience, download all of them. Make sure to have your current antivirus program turned OFF before installing it.

    1. Click on a component, and then on “start download.”
    2. Click on the file and click yes to start installing.
    3. Be sure to create a folder for all SPAMfighter solutions.
    4. Click Finish to run your program.

    Repeat the above steps for Optimization components. If you already have anti-spam software, you’ll unironically need to disable it before installing any of the solutions.

    For business, you’ll need to set up a server or have one already available. The process is the same as above.


    SPAMfighter has a couple of tools to optimize your computer. Slow-PCfighter is supposed to boost your RAM and eliminate hardware errors. But it doesn’t work around your antivirus, which makes little sense.

    In almost all cases, these optimization tools only make your device slower.

    Threat Protection

    Adware PreventionYes


    SPAMfighter detects and isolates malicious emails. This process is automatic. You can also scan your emails and other files for spyware. The way it does this is sporadic and inconsistent. You’ll often find yourself manually checking your junk folders for actual threats.

    Privacy and Security

    Privacy - not an ideal choice if this is your priority. Does not distinguish regular emails from threats.

    Security - doesn’t protect you as well as McAfee or Trend Micro.

    Performance and Protection

    As mentioned, this software offers little to no protection against common viruses. Performance is also inconsistent.

    Malware Protection

    SPAMfighter detects and prevents malware.

    Ransomware Detection

    This comes with the service package.

    Phishing Detection

    It has built-in phishing prevention.

    Spyware Detection

    SPAMfighter detects and eliminates spyware.

    Firewall Protection

    No firewall services available.

    Lab Test Results

    SPAMfighter scored a 4.4/5 through numerous professional reviews. After a few runs on a test server, we found that the optimization department failed to deliver.

    Ease of Use and Interface

    The software is easy to use, but the interface is incredibly outdated.

    Customer Support

    Telephone is the only available form of customer service. The good news is that it’s toll-free.
