This application report reviews the SpyAxe application.

We find that SpyAxe is badware because it fails to uninstall completely, is difficult to exit without purchasing the full version of the product, and because it interferes with computer use and modifies other software without disclosure.

We currently recommend that users do not install the version of SpyAxe that we tested, unless the user is comfortable with the level of risk we identify or until the application is updated consistent with the recommendations in this report.
