Today many of us are worried about all the spyware, malware, adware, etc. on our PCs. Many of us use google or other search engines to find a reliable program to detect these evil thingies.
Not all anti-spyware programs are legit. Some are trying to sell something, some are themselves the bad guys.

Here is a list of suspect anti-spyware programs.

"Rogue/Suspect" means that these products are of unknown, questionable, or dubious value as anti-spyware protection.

Some of the products listed on this page simply do not provide proven, reliable anti-spyware protection or may be prone to ridiculous false positives. Others may use unfair, deceptive, high pressure sales tactics to scare up sales from gullible, confused users. A very few of these products are either associated with known distributors of spyware/adware or have been known to install spyware/adware themselves.
