    Hello all - unfortunately PC Tools ThreatExpert / ThreatFire is incorrectly identifying SUPERAntiSpyware as a "threat".

    Here is the URL:
    http://www.threatexpert.com/report.aspx?uid=03b4df9e-89ff-48bf-88a9-b90140b1e92f

    We have tried contacting them to no avail so we are trying to raise public awareness to this problem in hopes they will respond and remove the threat listing.

    We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause for our over 6 million SUPERAntiSpyware users.

    You are the author of superantispy, very courageous to upload your software to such services. ;)
    I understand this curiosity.

    ThreatExpert has probably flagged it because PcTools and McAfee detected it. Good idea to contact them as well :)
