Threatfire (www.threatfire.com/support) antivirus has been showing hints and one of them is indicating that McAvee is a nesting ground for Spyware and might be construed as Spyware. Have you heard anything about this.

What is the exact problem?
What file are we talking about?
BTW, ThreatFire is NOT an antivirus program.

Well I don't have the details on the exact file, but when I open up the interface for Threatfire it says at the top "Spyware and Virus Protection", so I naturally assumed it was "antivirus".

Well i can't exactly pull it out of a hat, as everytime a user goes on threatfire interface, there is a different hint . I might get lucky but I doubt it, but will take note of it if it happens again and get back to you GTG with the info.

But thanks anyway, and by the way I have re-installed McAvee and no advisements yet about spyware etc.
