    When i was looking for an antispywware product, for use in a business. i came accress many so called products, that contained spyware themselves.

    so i decided to download a few of these just to se what they contained, i used a test machine,so as not to infect anything.

    but after testing a few i found that most of the free demo products, had browser history collectors, and advertising popups. that they installed.
    i seemed that i needed to type my credit card info, to remove these popus the antispyware installed.

    ok i didn’t give them any inforamtion but it just shows that you need to research the product you buy. as you never know who might end up with your details.

    I’d agree that norton IS a virus, Bob, but not for that reason.

    It’s a pain in the ass to delete however. Took me nearly 4 months including editing the registry to do it.

    That said, I’d personally reccomend AVG anti-spyware (formerly Eweido anti spyware) as it’s never yet let a piece of spam get onto my system.

    Recently I came across with a post from a forum that Nortan Anti virus is a Virus, If you try their free trial offer, they will start sending you messages for getting Your Credit Card Number and creating other problem to buy their paid version. Its just look horrible to me. Source: http://www.webhosting.uk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2533
