Clearly, there is no single software that addresses the spyware issue and what is worse, there really isn't a satisfactory definition of what is
spyware. SpyCatcher and Spybot S&D both list BackWeb, but if you try to disable BackWeb, virtually every device you have hooked up goes bananas
because it is used by a host of manufacturers, such as HP and Logitech, to keep the software, drivers and such updated. I have quarantined BackWeb
several time and each time I unleash it because it just gets too chaotic. Besides, I like some of the services it delivers.
As far as SpyCatcher goes, now I know what I need to download the next time my browser goes berserk. I will keep castlecops in mind, though. It
sounds like a valuable service.
