    Hello to all,

    I am using SpywareBlaster Version 3.5.1. with the latest update.
    Over the past 2 days I have noticed a particular activeX which keeps unlocking itself in the Internet Explorer-section, although I am mainly using Mozilla Firefox!

    This particular activeX seems to lock-free itself! It is named:

    ConnectSwitch Dialer Variant (plus long number following)

    Furthermore my tool SCAN SPYWARE Version 3.8 keeps finding the same problem. I keep deleting but it appears back again.

    So far I have done another Online-Virus-scan with Bit-defender (result=nothing!).

    Does anyone have the same problem?

    As to this, your tool is on the rogue list,

    I definetly agree with Snowbounds assessment and in regards to Spywareblasters ActiveX entry(ConnectSwitch)....your ScanSpyware program is Falsely reporting a valid Spywareblaster database entry.

    Thanks for your answers............both of you!

    My English isn`t THAT perfect but I guess words like "rogue-list" and FALSELY do mean that the tool is useless?!

    Can you confirm please?
    Should I get rid of it?

    Many thanks!
