Software - Free??

2 most recent programs I have had this happen with - spyhunter & spyblock. Don't bother to download the trial if you aren't prepared to purchase.
Just needed to vent,

Many of the "Free" trial versions give you false alerts just to get you to buy the software, which does nothing or could even be something malicious itself, and who wants to pay good money for damaging software.

Isn't that normal for commercial anti-malware softwares ?
Of course there are other ways to avoid buying software, but I don't think this forum is the right place to discuss these (illegal) methods.
If money is a problem use the freewares. They do the same job as commercial ones. Security is an illusion and nothing or nobody is 100% safe. You only can minimize the risks, that's all.
Ask JFK's opinion about security, when you meet him in heaven.

Just the other day, my mother told me that she was using Pest Patrol, and it was showing that she had CWS.Google.MS.3, but turns out its a bug in the soft that registers a CWS occasionally that is not there.

The CWS.GoogleMS.3 is a Pest Patrol false positive, caused by SpywareBlaster. This FP in Pest Patrol was fixed in a recent update. I would recommend you tell your mother to update her version of Pest Patrol to fix the problem.
