    This app does appear on the rogue list here,

    http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm

    If u read the note in the link on this app. false postives were a problem but apparently the new release has remedied that. I wonder.....

    Hi snowbound,

    Like you said this application is no more on the rogue list and in fact it is a good one. Generally, now, the false/positive ares quickly resolved!!! I also got to admit that like any other more legit anti-spyware the upgrade seems to create a view false/positives. But, hey... all anti-spyware have false/positives once in a while and more specifically when their product are upgrade!!!

    You don't have to wonder because this application is now not worst than the bunch and it is even good!
