I have just spent some time reading some of the posts in this forum. I had never heard of Winfix until just now. Hey, there are a lot of things I've never heard of. I do know that there are some Bad guys out there posing as Anti Spyware. I am only aware of one, by name, but I'll bet that between all of the folks who post to this forum there are a number of these bad guys that are known. Would it be helpful if a collection of these could be put all in one place?

Just a thought,

The list below is the true list of such programs. As it is such an exhaustive list, there would be no benefit of reproducing it:
