Ok, I was helping a user over @ CCSP and she said she had run SpySweeper and SpySubtract (http://www.spysubtract.com). Does someone know if this is a legit scanning tool? Or does it belong on the Rouge Spyware List?

Webhelper? Any Previous Dealings with this company? I'll check back a little later.

SpySubtract is not on the suspect/rogue list here:

http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm

It is included in this list by Eric Howes,

https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www/soft6.htm

along with the familiar apps Ad-aware, Spybot Search & Destroy and SpySweeper.

I've never used it but perhaps Eric has more info on it.

DeleterFX:

SpySubtract is a completely legit anti-spyware tool from the makers of AdSubtract -- the ad/popup blocker.

Best,
