I just got this new spychecker and it's very good. It found lots of stuff that SpySweeper has not shown up...there were 77 instances of spyware.

One problem.. it tells me that Limewire is a 'Threat', I didn't delete the instances, I came on here to check if anything is known about it.

EDIT: This is what it says in the details..
Any peer-to-peer file swapping program, such as Audiogalaxy, Bearshare, Blubster, E-Mule, Gnucleus, Grokster, Imesh, KaZaa, KaZaa Lite, Limewire, Morpheus, Shareaza, WinMX and Xolox. In an organization, can degrade network performance and consume vast amounts of storage. May create security issues as outsiders are granted access to internal files. Often bundled with Adware or Spyware.
Strange thing is, I also have Shareaza installed and it didn't find that
Always judge a person by the way they treat someone who can be of no possible use to them
