    Anti-Spyware 2005 is listed as a rogue product on Eric Howe's site
    http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm

    XoftSpy was removed from the rogue list, however.. http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm#xos_note

    You're probably still better off sticking with the known good ones like Spybot, AdAware, SpySweeper, MS, etc.

    This Xoftspy found 23 infected objects after full scan with Ad-aware, Microsoft antispyware and Spybot.

    This just confirm that 1 anti spyware is not enought!

    I personally tested Xoftspy - and it found a bunch of fake stuff which actually did not exist on my machine. I looked for it further, including checking registry and the stuff simply didn't exist. Easy advertising, that, but rather rude I think.
