Released 18 April so no long term assessment of effectiveness but seems quite good.

I've clicked that link twice now and both times it locked IE. I had to use ctrl+alt+del to close.

A bit too dodgy for my liking.

i have just tried the link it is an online scan (well thats the only thing i can come up with) tells you your PC is clean then prompts you to download spyware doctor which you have to PAY for. NOT FOR ME!!!

Just ran the install and same as SANTOS7 it wants you to purchase another prog.

have had a further look at it; what exactly is this thing? IS it an on-line scan or..? and my Guard IE is picking something up on it :(

maybe one ought to stick with the known and trusted programs?

??where did you find this smokingbeagle?

p;3, Got it from a feature in a trusted newsletter. It does a quick scan, seems benign but also appears to encourage you to download a further program. Perhaps other forum members ought to wait till this can be evaluated. I'll mark this as resolved and report back.

it is sometimes a better idea to ask on forum if people have met and used something and what they think of it; there is so much out there that is just waiting to trap us into messing up our pc"s ,and it is probably a good idea to stick with the tried and trusted product names .
