Hi folks,can any one here tell me how trusted a squared is?I downloaded it and done a smart scan and it found traces of spywarebot and napster while spybot s&d,avg and spyware terminator all found nothing.I quarantined them just incase.Any help much appreciated.Thanks.

fwiw, I've used it for years, & think it's a useful tool.

Its a good program,and highly thought of on here.Its good at catching trojans that others miss.

I have used it for years and think it is one of the best.

Ok thanks folks.I scan my computer with all my anti stuff every second day.I have spywareblaster installed and have scanned with superantispyware,spybot,avg etc and everything was showing clean so I got a bit worried when a squared showed my computer as being infected and was wondering if it could have been false positives.But I trust this forum.Thanks folks.

A squared does make more use of heuristics in its scanning which does increase the chances of it throwing up false positives.
