i recently tried this after seeing it mentioned in another thread. it found a number of threats but it found it didnt like my p.c. and firefox and froze so i removed it.
i went to its site and tried online scan running i.e.
it again found a number of threats, mainly cwhomesearch, but it wouldnt remove it unless i bought the spycatcher. i searched the registry with regseeker and it found no such animal as "homesearch". is this a valuable lesson learnt or have i got invisible gremlins.

CAnt see it listed on the rougue list click here
but if its finding things and willnot remove without cost and non of your other progs find it then looks like a rougue.

Scan with any of the following Anti Spyware :-
Adaware click here
Spybot S&D click here
Spywareblaster click here
a2 click here
MSoftAntispy Beta click here
Ewido click here

To give good protection install Spyware blaster Ms antispy and adaware they will catch almost everything remember to keep updated.

i should have mentioned that i have
ms antispyware
adaware
spybot
spywareblaster
a2
ewido
cwshredder ( lists homesearch as not present on system)
spydefense
anti trojan shield
avg
zone alarm
and last but not least win patrol plus
and the only things they find lately is the odd tracking cookie, so im putting it down as a sales ploy.
