They recently replaced Spyhunter 1.1.29 with 1.1.30. Look at the google cache of opinions about 1.1.29 -

They host Evidence Eliminator, too.

Here's a funny little story about it - At one time, SpyHunter was getting spammed with good ratings(The same message over and over again), they removed them, but they obviously don't see that it's malware. Oh yeah, one more thing - The only good reviews those malware products get are by 'users' such as "Shannon" that blatently say it's good and better than all the others. Look here for example - http://download.com.....html?pn=2&fb=1
They start off with a random number of good comments, then the REAL users comment on it, and its rating goes downhill from there.

Bottom-line - Sellouts.
