Even places like Snapfiles click here and Tucows click here are having to be more selective on what they choose to offer for downloading. One in four of their submitted test programmes are apparently rejected, through possible nasties being present in the software provided by programmers.

I have just clicked on the Tucows link, and Spyware Terminator, which is an anti programme that I am testing, is showing caution!.

The Spyware Terminator I am using is the Crawler version, which is classed as the 'safe' version.
