Additional Information from Spyware Warrior:

  • Note on Spyware Detector: Spyware Detector was listed onthis page because of concerns with false positives. Testing with the latest version of Spyware Detector indicates that the problems with earlier versions have been satisfactorily resolved. Thus, we can no longer consider Spyware Detector to be "rogue/suspect" anti-spyware.

Please note that Spyware Warrior and F-Secure use different criteria in establishing the nature of an application.
