New free spyware Scanner!!!
« on: December 15, 2005, 12:44:28 AM »
I found a new spyware scanner today. It is called SpywareCatcher Express. I checked spyware warrior and I did not see it's name on the rogue antispyware list. I am checking it now. The homepage to this programs site is http://www.download.com/SpyCatcher-Express-2006/3000-8022_4-10439768.html

Yeah I saw those reviews. I don't know about it personally, I did a scan with it and it found the asw.boot file as suspicius. It also may be a little confusing. I think I'm gonna get rid of it for now.

I see alot of negative reviews about this program, plus there was post on some other website saying that SpyCatcher Express could be infected with a Spyware (probably not). 

Just stick with the well known brands and you should be fine.

Hi Bob3160,

But the nag about this horse denture is, you never know actually what horse has the foul mouth and the cavities smelly. Those rogueware  and scumware spreaders they are clever, they only spread one rotter per dozen, so some may write good about them, while others find themselves with a computer full of proverbial horsedung. Watch out.
