I have installed MSN Messenger plus, and after scanning with Microsoft Antispyware it found one piece of spyware which was caused by msn messenger plus it has a moderate threat level and is saying that it requires attention, I chose to ignore it as I want to keep it, any ideas?

What was the spyware called?

It is called Messenger Plus (Software Bundler) and has two entries in Program Files and loads of registry entries. I never choose the option to install the sponsers during installation so can't understand why this is showing as spyware?

This still appears as spyware, I want to keep msn messenger plus, is having it on my system doing any damage? MS antispyware said it is a threat, whilst ad aware and spybot don't pick it up!
