Subject: Beware of rogue antispyware sites/programs
From: "Steve Wechsler [MVP]" <mowgreen@gmail.com> Sent: 7/25/2005 1:40:58 PM




Users who are desperate to rid themselves of spy|malware are sometimes
suckered into scanning their systems or installing rogue antispyware
programs from unscrupulous web sites.
Unfortunately, Google is a prime source of said sites/scanners.
Be careful where you have your system scanned and which antispyware
program you choose to install.

This site,
http://platinumpartner.com/index.asp...t=Anti-Spyware
makes it's money by preying upon unsuspecting Users. ANY so-called
antispyware "programs" listed here are NOT to be trusted.
For a more extensive list of rouge/suspect antispyware sites and
programs go here :
