and found that you think that SamSpade is a "bad" program simply because it has ads. SamSpade is a very useful piece of software that can help track down the sender of UCE and other useful tools built-in.

We think it's bad? To the contrary!

Sam Spade is the most wonderful tracing software I've ever come across. PestPatrol flags this as a false postive, but Sam Spade is, without a doubt, innocent of all charges.

In fact, it's the darling of many a Helper and up here, and without it, part of our functionality would be lost.

Where did you see that??

SamSpade is in constant use here -
When you say "your software", what program are you referring to?

I downloaded XClean Micro, ran it and SamSpade popped up as one of the "evil" apps it found. I, of course, told it to ignore SamSpade, but was curious as to why it was flagged! :-)

No clue. False positive I would suppose. I'll point the XClean developer to this thread.

That'll work. :) I was just curious as to why it was flagged... Figured maybe someone here knew something I didn't. ;)

By the way, and I realize this probably ought to go in the "website" section, but I'm too lazy to change over to there ;)

When I clicked where it says "click here and select 'open from current location'" I didn't have that option. I'm running Win2k, and Netscape 7.1.... Just thought I'd mention it.
