Superantispyware is not a rogue. I've used it a couple if times and it seems to perform reasonably well.

According to Eric Howes' who maintains a definitive list of:
Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products & Web Sites
Here

It has been tested and has not been included on the rogue Anti-Spyware list.
Although when in reference to Super Antispyware and others tested but not included on the rogue list...

Note that the above list is not another list of "rogue/suspect" anti-spyware applications. Please do not email the vendors for these products and claim that their products are considered "rogue/suspect," because they are not. The only "rogue/suspect" are those included on the main list at the top of this page.
Still further, that we have not classified these applications as "rogue/suspect" should not be taken as an endorsement or recommendation of any kind. We always urge users to stick to the short list of anti-spyware applications that have proven tracken records for trustworthy performance.



Here at Bleeping Computer we also have a list of tested and recommended:

I might add that this product is listed on the Calendar of Updates (COU) site where they list the most popular & reliable security programs.

It is a valid program that is praised by several security experts over at the Microsoft Security Newsgroups; however, it seems to perform rather sluggishly, hog more than enough RAM, and causes my computer to freeze and go into an extremely slow and unusual state when I cancel a scan.
