    DON'T fall into Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Sites

    Just to make sure everyone will get this information.
    Spread this message if you find the following useful.

    One day, someone recommended me about this website:
    hxxp:// (rogue site!!)
    hxxp:// (Another rogue site which has anti-spyware reviews very similar to the above!!)​
    (You may consider banning these sites!)

    I took a look at it.
    Surprisingly, it ranked some of the uncommon anti-spyware as Number 1. It has a column for spyware test where this Number-1 product score the highest. However that's it. It has no details about the test.
    To mask its pushy advertising tactics, it does put up some famous anti-spyware in the top 10 list.
    Actually it is an affiliate site which have financial relationships with some anti-spyare companies.

    This website is listed in "Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Sites":

    For more information why this website is untrustworthy, see:

    To find out who own this rogue website:


    If you wish to get better anti-spyware reviews, go there instead:

    Thanks for your time to read it.
