ms antispyware and spywareblaster conflict?

  sunny staines 17:14 22 Apr 2005

scanned with latest update
and ms antispyware found a reported keylogger at c\program files\spywareblaster\unins000.exe
I think this may be spywareblaster file but worried it could be a spyware program using spywareblaster name in the title. Anyone else got it can offer advice please.

This seems to have happened since the latest update of Microsoft's programme and has been reported elsewhere in this forum

For my own part I've deleted the item without any apparent problem while I await more information

I've no doubt the Spywareblaster guys will be on the case. I'll certainly not be deleting their programme

Yes same here after I updated MS AntiSpyware, I just deleted what it found and have no probs. Andy

i have not deleted it just put it in quarentine.

came as a shock as i have internet banking, now others have it i suspect it just a clash and not spyware using spywareblaster name.

I believe it's a false positive as it definitely IS the uninstaller for spywareblaster,thats doesn't mean it can't have a keylogger in it but click here and the concensus of opinion seems to be false positive as well.
As per some of the advice there i've just renamed it till a definitive answer comes out
