    Hi,

    Microsoft Anti-Spyware with the latest definitions (as of the posting of this message) seems to detect the SpywareBlaster uninstall file (unins000.exe) as a keylogger.

    This is a false-detection, and has been reported to Microsoft for fixing. You can ignore it until then.

    [Note: This false-detection may also affect other applications that use the InnoSetup installer. If you have other unins000.exe files being detected from other programs, they are most likely false detections as well.]

    UPDATE (April 23, 2005): Users have reported that Microsoft has fixed the false-positive detection. Reports indicate that the false-positive no longer occurs with the newly released 5711 definitions and the latest 1.0.509 version of Microsoft Anti-Spyware.

    Best regards,
