    Yes, I heard of the partnership between Aluria and Whenu.

    LOL @ Adware supported Anti-Spyware softwares.
    That must be a new mutation of Anti-Spyware softwares.
    Keeping the adwares on our computers after the scan, that is their final goal.
    What a comedy !!! :rolleyes:

    Same here and Restricted Zones (IE-SPYAD) blacklists 11 WhenU sites.
    That's what I like about Eric Howes : he has the courage to call bad websites and rogue anti-spyware softwares by NAME.
