    It looks to me like 2-spyware.com is basing that opinion on two false positives.

    That's clearly a false positive. Trojan detection in other security software is not that uncommon, considering what that software usually does.

    I take it you have notified for example Kaspersky about this detection?

    2-spyware.com
    It's a dubious site according to quite a few observers.

    According to their site it's checkmark certified and also it has received VB100 awards,definitely not a rogue.

    Let's analyze the site's statements:
    This, in itself might be a problem, but it also can happen if the antivirus site was compromised by a hacker for instance. This is not a good thing for an antivirus company, but also it's not unheard of... Other well known antivirus sites were hacked, that doesn't mean their product were rogue software.

    That proves nothing. What do they mean by suspicious and untrusted? No evidence is provided to support their accusations. Even more, what if i host a "suspicious" site (whatever that means), and I decide to advertise Quickheal to earn some extra cash? That means the product I support is malware/rogue? I don't think so.

    Another unsubstantiated accusation. No traffic logs, screenshots or other proof was provided, just an affirmation.

    It may well be listed on some dubious download sites but it's also on the likes of Techrepublic and download.com

    QuickHeal is a legit program. It may not be the best and its track record is crappy, but it's clearly not a rogue.

    Tell me about it! They wanted me to pay for getting support, I should be getting for free, because they mess up things in their own system, which I paid for!
