    Hi,

    I just came across this product today.

    I know alot of antispyware products but never heard of this. My first thought was that is was a rouge, but I don't think it is anymore.

    spywarecease[dot]com

    Does anyone know something about it?

    Some tests?

    Anyone using it?

    Anyone willing to make a small test?

    Thanks,
    Tesk

    I don't understand why those Spyware Cease guys even wasted their and Spybot's team time, just to come to the conclusion is a rogue. They only helped to prove it. lol

    WOT lit uplike a Christmas tree, A2 surf protection blocked the site and MBAM says it's a rogue and they have always been one of the best at rogue detection IMO. That's all I need to know.

    If it turns out it's not rogue per bubba's link good luck to them but they would need to do lot to convince me to try it.

    Maybe they will come here and defend it?

    Cheers

    Even if it isn't a rogue it's a FP monster,so rather than deliberately misleading users it's [noparse]cr@p.It[/noparse]'s been de-listed on Cnet and along with the dodgy Softpedia award,everthing about it screams avoid!

    Wow, shocking news.

    It isn't a regular rouge, just a sucky antispyware.

    Thanks for clearing that off, I don't want to test the software now. I have other tests I could do then.

    This topic has been answered, I think. Thanks guys.
