I am a newcomer to Ewido's anti-spyware and thought it the best thing since sliced bread -- that is, until I "tested it out", when it fell at the first hurdle. I simply installed Realplayer's freebie version (UNFORTUNATELY, a necessity if you want to listen to a lot of BBC's stuff). I was extremely disappointed to discover that it completely ignored the presence of realsched.exe. Is this an oversight, or does Ewido subscribe to what Realplayer gets up to? Saying that the user agrees to it via the EULA is not valid - how many people do you know who actually read those darn things - much less understand them? Besides which, defending it on that basis is a bit like defending these conditions that used to be printed on the back of dry cleaning tickets - laughable. Either way, I now begin to wonder what else it might ignore . . . . and why? Please set my mind at rest. JDH PS Oh, and please don't use the excuse that if you remove the run command from the registry, Realplayer checks and re-inserts it. You know as well as I there are simple ways round it.
