Thanks Tomo2.
Here are more info regarding this site.
www.antispywareboss.com is hosted at static IP address:216.255.188.108. If you use the static ip it will lead you to a different site that sell a software call antispyboss. I think this is a rogue antispyware product. I do not have enough time to test the software, but I will do it and post the finding to the correct place in this forum.
