    It looks like a rogue app itself, imho. I'm seeing very little on it when searching for reviews and what I do find isn't finding this app very good, with some saying it itself is full of malware.

    This program has been around for a while. I remember seeing it in a few independent reviews soon after XP came out. The program is awful, probably the worst antispyware antimalware app available IMO. But its not a rogue

    What else did you expect from it? It has been discontinued since 2005 :D

    Yeah it was once listed on spywarewarrior but was later de-listed.

    Since the program was de-listed on spywarewarrior I think it's no longer a rogue. Moreover the detected threat (bitfrost) actually does exist, many security products classify it as a backdoor/trojan.

    More info about BitFrost:

    I recommend SpywareDoctor Starter Edition (from GooglePack) or SUPERAntispyware FREE Edition for free spyware removal.

    It looks a registry key created/used by another program?

    Ever used Wget? As such when detected like this alone/considering the age of the program that detected it, I'd be labeling it as false positive.
