What made you think that they would honestly tell you that they are spyware, if they really are?
My problem is that when I did a search on wintools, I get a number of responses that wintools is spyware or worse. When I search Wintools Software Engineering I get the opposite result.

* HuntBar, aka WinTools or Adware.Websearch, is a small family of spyware programs distributed by TrafficSyndicate. TrafficSyndicate.com is a trademark of IBIS, LLC. It is installed by an ActiveX drive-by download at affiliate Web sites, or by advertisements displayed by other spyware programs — an example of how spyware can install more spyware. These programs add toolbars to IE, track browsing behavior, redirect affiliate references, and display advertisements.
