It is not listed here:


and it doesn't seem to be another Smitfraud variant, so it may be okay...

Please read the Instructions for posting requested logs and the article "So how did I get infected in the first place?"

Advanced Spyware Remover used to be on the Rogue Antispy List, but was de-listed in 2006.

Quote from SpywareWarrior:

Advanced Spyware Remover was listed on this page because of concerns with false positives. Testing with the latest version of Advanced Spyware Remover indicates that the problems with earlier versions have been satisfactorily resolved. Thus, we can no longer consider Advanced Spyware Remover to be "rogue/suspect" anti-spyware.

Regardless, I still wouldn't recommend it to you, considering we have much more reputable products to choose from.
