    Hi caspian,

    I believe it meets the definition of a "Potentially unsafe application". Every user has the ability to allow or disallow it's use by enabling or disabling that parameter. This article explains it in more detail.

    Yes, it is about "potentially unsafe application".

    Another example, not Spector Pro but Ardamax:

    Quick test done on 30 Aug 2010 with EAV4 on the Ardamax keylogger:

    C:\Program Files\TES\AKV.exe - a variant of Win32/KeyLogger.Ardamax potentially unsafe application
    C:\Program Files\TES\TES.007 - a variant of Win32/KeyLogger.Ardamax potentially unsafe application
    C:\Program Files\TES\TES.exe - a variant of Win32/KeyLogger.Ardamax potentially unsafe application
