    Does anyone have access to the makers of Javacool software ? Can or do the moderators have any contact with them? If so please inform them that a bogus anti-spyware has stolen there name for SpywareGuard and this can be found by doing a Yahoo search , it has by the usual illegal means promoted itself to the number 1 spot on the search results , I would suggest that someone contact them and also Yahoo (aka Yapoo) and either prosecute the said company and ask that dumb lot at Yapoo to remove the crap , as the site hides its true identity and is obviously trying to cash in on the SpywareGuard name , hope someones listening ffs.

    Hi,

    What link in particular are you seeing? Can you take a screenshot and post it here?

    When I do a search for "spywareguard" in Yahoo, the first result is the correct page: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareguard.html

    Best regards and thanks,

    -Javacool

    Most likely candidate (URL= hxxp://www.spywareguard.com/) , because of the url, although they "wisely" call the software itself Anti-Spyware Guard.

    Hi,

    I hope you won't mind, Get, but I disabled the link in your post above.

    I figure there's no need to give them any ranking boosts in search engines by linking to that site from here. ;)

    Best regards,

    -Javacool

    While I don't use Spywareguard, I do use Spyware Blaster from you guys, Javacool. I am curious about this. What can you do about this? Keep us posted. Thanks.

    hxxp://www.spywareguard.com/It has been removed from yahoo but is still being touted on google ( so no change at google then , still promoting crap lol ), it has however been removed from yahoo (after several emails to those dozy lot), my attention was drawn to this when spyware doctor from pc tools detected your spyware guard as a rogue/bogus anti spyware program after several emails they corrected there dat file , in the mean time i did a search and found it at the top of yapoo's search engine , which just goes to show how easily you can manipulate there or anyone's search engine with a few 1000 botnet pc's , (unless they have found another way of getting to the number 1 spot ), anyway its still on google so go sue them lol , please remove or blank out url javacool as we dont want these cowboys stealing anyones hard earned $'s or £'s .
    PS:- Get was correct about the url but it is touting itself as SpywareGuard which is identical in its spelling to your program . Once again javacool please alter the link once you have viewed it thankyou.

    To bloody funny its back on yapoo search engine , i personally haven't downloaded it and dont want to , i usually do just to see what b/s spyware it finds besides what they put on , can't be assed at the moment might just run it on a clean pc , just to see what it apparently finds , any good or honest anti-spyware is usually available from reliable sources like cnet/majorgeeks/softpedia/hippo files etc not some search engine to funny unless your a novice who starts to panic at the sight of flashing pop ups and bloody beeps etc , surely the name SpywareGuard has a copyright on it o_O

    Seems Javacool has been the target of another rogue program trying to cash in on there name SpywareB1aster ( note the 1 instead of an l (L)), and oddly it looks like the same people who are trying to use the SpywareGuard name as both sites look very similiar in design , old habits die hard , about time Javacool got there lawyers onto it .
