spyware-net http://www.spyware-net.com or alternatively http://www.fbmsoftwa...om/spyware-net/
I was going to refer to this as a source for my answer to a spywatch question but I want to know if it's reliable first.

There is no point in asking this question if you don't wait for an answer and go ahead and post anyway five minutes later, therefore I have deleted your reply.

My thoughts as well jedi.

To answer your question, McAfee SiteAdvisor has deemed both sites to be safe.

Hope is not a method.

However, since it mainly seems to exist to promote its own product, it is not clear if it is reliable... I would stick with known sources for recommendations for products... If you see them agreeing with a number of legit sites over time and its products don't turn out to be rogue, it may turn out to be a reliable source... Until then, caution is advised...
