This is about spyware & adware detector programmes and who do you trust.
I have a very suspicious mind and have a belt/braces/string & elastic band attitude to spyware. I have -
Systemsuite 8 by Avanquest, which includes antivirus & anti-spam. Spybot Search & Destroy V.1.5.2. AdAware 2007 Free by Lavasoft Ghostsurf 2007 Platinum which has Spycatcher, by Tenebril Inc. Spyware Terminator & Spyware Detector.
..paranoid, you bet I`m paranoid...
..now the problem is who do you trust of the above? -
Spyware Detector in some people`s minds is well known as Ransomware.I even had the expiry date change on me suddenly (it lost 120 days!!, but I got them back).., but it was the ONLY programme of the above which found keylogger from keylogger.com, a particularly insidious piece of kit that is supposedly undetectable by Any Known anti-virus software on the market today (check out the website that sells it - amecisco.com...!!)
However, it is also telling me that Tenebril`s Spycatcher, that come bundled with Ghostsurf 2007, is Fake Anti-Spyware, and is hideously heinous, & yes you guessed, Spybot-Search & Destroy is saying the same thing about Spyware Detector, being Ransomware, finding things that aren`t a threat and asking you to pay to remove them....So who do you trust?
By the way, Systemsuite 8, Spyware Terminator & Spybot, didn`t find keylogger. ...and only two of them found E-Worm.Zhelatin.vy, and yes that was Spyware Detector (supposedly ransomware) and good old AdAware 2007....!
