I have SpywareGuard loaded on my computer and recently got hit by a nasty BHO helper trying to rewrite my homepage and cause general mayhem. When I clicked the prompt when it asked me if I wanted the object removed I naturally selected OK. Once I did that, I decided to check to make sure it was actually gone. I ran REGEDIT and what did I find? The very registry entries SG said it had removed. SG does great at letting me know something has happened, but it apparently does NOTHING to remove the cause, even when it says it has. It really upsets me that I have 6 different programs on my computer that fight spyware and viruses and none of them can remove all of the dangerous intrusions, eventhough they are marketed to do so. It leads me to suspect they really aren't designed to do that at all. Just makes it infinitely difficult for the consumer to get their computers functional, forcing them to Best Buy to by another $79 antispyware program that does just as little. Or better yet, forces them to spend hundreds on a firewall, produced by the same company too. I have often suspected the very people who produce the antispyware materials are also behind spyware in the first place. It sure does create and ensure a very lucrative market. Forces us ignorant consumers to spend billions on useless software that were are told will solve our problems. But hey, if you're creative enough neither the FBI nor any other fair trade or government enforcement agency will ever be able to trace it because the problem can always be blamed on your local anarchist with a PC; some disgruntled former employee of Microsoft or Sun, and the real beauty of that is that everyone will believe it! But you legit antispyware people who honestly want to see this crap stop (eventhough it would eventually put you out of business by doing so, or at least but a big dent in your marketshare), just make everyone's life easier by making antispyware software that really works!!
