    The current database for Spysweeper (as of February 19) incorrectly identifies the uninstall executable of RegDefend as malicious. Webroot have been contacted and it should be rectified soon.

    Spy Sweeper is doing the same on the uninstall executable for CryptoSuite.

    This appears to be corrected in the 25-Feb-05 SS definition set 459.

    However, there appears to be a HOTBAR false positive ;) 20 registries entries found on my machine where AdAware, PestPatrol, Giant, NIS 2005 sees nothing.

    I got the same thing. I let it quarantine them, with no apparent ill effect.
