    I no nothing about it find it here http://www.snapfiles.com/get/araneaspy.html

    I'm going to let the pros here look at at and give their opinions about this program. It could be a rogue program so download at your own risk. ;) I didn't find it over at the rogue/suspects list. I did a fast scan through there and didn't see the name.

    I checked their website at http://www.freeimagebrowser.com/forum/showthread.php?t=277 and It appears to be an up and coming Spyware removal tool. I have not downloaded and tested it yet, but it does appear to play well with both Adaware and Sptbot S&D judging from the posts on their forum.

    I'll install it on one of my test boxes tonight and get back to you.

    Looks like a waste of time to me. Maybe in a year or so they may be somewhat better. Only 200+ detections? It seems they've a ways to go.
