    Sorry to bother you all:

    I believe SpyCatcher 2006 installs a rootkit that, upon uninstall, remains behind. Spy Sweeper flags it, but cannot remove it.

    Anybody able to confirm this? And what does Tenebrill, the publ, admit about this?

    Any simple fixes.

    SpyCatcher Express, the freeware, so messed up my machine I had to uninstall. The purchased verson seemed better, but I don't trust the company at this point.
