    I am using avast home under win xp home sp2 of japanese lang.
    It is said in Japan that PestPatrol detects "actskin4.ocx" so that avast should include spywares.
    I tried to find evidences what avast has spywares, but I haven't yet.
    I wanna believe it's a false positive of PestPatrol.
    How do you think about it ?

    Also I tried to find evidences what AntiVir and AVG have spywares, but I haven't yet.
    These, AntiVir, avast and AVG, were scanned by spybot and ad-aware SE, but no spyware.

    Do they include spywares inside of a freeware version ?
    Is CA making traps for them ?
    Or are some ani-virus vendors trying to make traps for freeware version of antiviruses ?

    Thats a huge false positive and avast! CERTANLY and 150% sure DOESN'T contain ANY spyware whatsoever.
    Also Pest Patrol tends to report all sorts of harmless stuff as spyware so i wouldn't really rely on this program alone...
