    Well, I found at least one rogue AS : "Anti-Spyware Blocker".
    http://www.windowsmarketplace.com/results.aspx?text=adware removal&minPrice=0&maxPrice=0&page=2

    which is blacklisted by Eric Howes on this link :
    http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm
    Note : EAV Software = your-soft.com = anti-viruses.net

    your-soft.com is also blacklisted in MVPS Hosts File
    127.0.0.1 "www.your-soft.com"

    So watch out !!! If I found one, there are probably more of them.

    This freeware list isn't objective either.
    The chapter "E-mail Applications", doesn't even mention "Mozilla Thunderbird". Unforgivable !!!

    You could be right about that. After all M$ likes to copy/buy ideas from others.
    But CNET Download.com has at least Thunderbird on their list.
