But two of the four detections -- Joshua -- is reporting look like FPs, one has insufficient information to make any judgement and only one which I think is most likely a good detection, so I think it might be a little premature to say "No more false positives" for Spyware Terminator.

I vote for ST too - good detection and ClamAV is another plus. I use it for occastional scannin (non-resident).

IMHO, the reason the 4 items were detected is that ST not just looks for the actual spyware but also the indications in registry, folder names etc., which is good.

Apart from the fact that this topic was dormant for over 2 years, the quote is still valid as a) the registry entry is actually what is displayed, )b even then there is insufficient information as I said.

So to reopen a post over two years old and comment on what may or may not have been an FP really can't be further investigated, making it a rather moot point.
