    i looked at Ashampoo AntiSpyWare, and at download.com it has 50 reviews..almost all positive.

    The software is new, and yet it has plenty of positive reviews all over the place.

    is ashampoo really that stupid to hype this product this way? Everyone with some sense would atleast put a questionmark about all those reviews on download.com

    or did they discount for reviews,-or someone trying to discredit them.

    Either way..somethings not right.

    Hey,
    They make a lot of other popular software - hence maybe the popularity.

    Indeed. Plus there is the unavoidable fact that the reviews on download.com are worth very little. If you must read reviews, at least choose a reputable source...

    It is not McAfee engine but a-squared it is. Known threats more than the all Anti-Spywares can offer together! :D

    Best regards,

    Yep, that is the marketing technique. When you download once, you will get free offerings. They have an astonishing CRM approach, must be automated. With same contacts name informing you on a regular base and every now and again the CEO sends you a 'personal' e-mail. From a marketing point of view this is really professional. A digital form of 'scene' marketing: first create your own scene of followers/users, then mobilise them.

    On the other, you can not blame a company for being professional, after all they provide freeware.
