I was checking out several spyware programs and for some reason when I did a scan using the Xoftspy spyware program it found alot of items that other programs couldn't find. Is this program a scam???? It said it found 14 items but won't let me remove them unless I pay $40 for the program(see attached list).

Hi Chim Chim,

In the past XSoft were of a dubious nature with agressive false positives to induce people to purchase, however Over the past few months, XoftSpy has taken aggressive steps to reign in its affiliates (who were primarily responsible for the unsavory advertising), revised its license text, and released a new version of XoftSpy (version 4.0) that addresses our concerns with false positves. Given these changes we can no longer regard XoftSpy as "rogue/suspect" anti-spyware.

I personally would not use it.

If you post a HJT log in this thread we can soon have your PC clean.
