SpyNoMore is a legitimate program that was briefly added to Spyware Warrior's Rogue List for false positives issues. SpyNoMore has now been de-listed. As you may be well aware, ALL major antispyware and antivirus programs have false positives (wrong detections), but the difference between rogue products and legitimate products like SpyNoMore is that rogue products add them intentionally to lure in customers. SpyNoMore does not engage in such illicit activity. SpyNoMore’s database is over 12mb (bigger than most programs), so it is bound to include a few false positives.

After the issue was dealt with satisfactorily, Spyware Warrior re-reviewed SpyNoMore and de-listed it. Here’s the link:

How telling it is that you failed to identify yourself are a representative of esunsofttechnologies, a company with a sorid history of pushing rogue applications. There are many well established security sites that will provide this same type of information and members should always be wary of those that register for no other purpose then to drive traffic to their site.

EDITED:to correct misspelling of the word rogue.

True Sword is a scam.

True Sword, once installed, pretends to scan your computer, and puts out all this techno mumbo jumbo reports about how your computer is 'infested'.

It claims to fix the first 10 problems and then... lo and behold, it finds 130 more problems (which are strangely unverifiable).

Then it tries to scare you or hard sell you into sending more money to 'finish the job'.

True Sword counts on you not checking whether it's claims are true or not.

I DID Check: True Sword listed registry keys and programs it said it was 'correcting'. I checked the registry, and searched via the command prompt, and I found that the problems True Sword said it was 'correcting' never existed on my computer to begin with.

This is a shady program. Don't give them a single cent. True Sword is a scam program that tries to get you to buy it, and then delivers positive reports of its fake successes while, in reality, doing absolutely nothing.

Hopefully the FBI or FTC will put these clowns in jail.

Put True Sword Back on the list!
