    I just installed SpywareBlaster 2.6.1 (from http://www.wilderssecurity.net/spywareblaster.html)... and when I did my regular Spy Sweeper (with latest definitions) full scan it picked up SpywareBlaster 2.6.1 uninstall file as being a version of AppsTraka ver 1... It has also claimed 2 other uninstall files as being AppsTraka in the last week... In another forum (/http://www.spywareinfoforum.com), when trying to track down info on this, it was proposed that this could be a "false positive" by Spy Sweeper as other programs such as Spybot didn't pick up AppsTraka. I was just wondering if anyone else had this issue... if so, perhaps the developers of SpywareBlaster 2.6.1 should contact Webroot Spy Sweeper about this "false positiveo_O" issue.

    I'm relieved to hear this is an issue with Spy Sweeper because it just reported Appstraka to me today and I could not figure out how I had a key monitor on my system that requires physical installation....

    I was thinking -- WHO THE HELL has been on my machine?

    anyways - thanks.
