Can you tell me what you think about free Tenebril's software spyware SpyCatcher-Express?
I would like to know if it is a legit one, because when I try to install it, Spyware Doctor alert me to uninstall it immediately. :thumbsup:
Thanks,
Darthy

You are much safer sticking to the free anti-spyware applications recommended by BC. Ad-AwareSE, Spybot, and AVG Anti-spyware, for example, are certainly among the best applications available.

:thumbsup: Hi Darthy :

Based on the recommendation of the Lead Analyst of PC Mag, I downloaded,
installed, updated and ran its "Full Scan". Its "Report" had MAJOR False Positives.
Within the next several months, antiSPYWARE Expert Eric Howes had dropped
the program from his "Trustworthy" List, which can be found at :

http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-s...htm#trustworthy .

Since Eric is currently the Director of Research for Sunbelt Software, the Makers
of "Counterspy", he has NOT listed that product in his "Trustworthy" category
to avoid any "conflict of interest" .
Also note that Eric has "dropped" Spybot out of his list of "top" products to its
own category of "find useful" .
