O.P. Mess Plus! picked up on Anti Spy
Quick Question.....

I just ran anti-spy on my computer and it picked up Messenger Plus! and highlighted it in red...the 'affected programs' were pretty much all of them on my computer.  Should it be doing this??  And should I be worried about it?  OR am I just being paranoid??
Thx

Messenger Plus! is not and does not contain spyware.
Sometimes, programs consider the optional sponsor program that comes with Plus! as spyware, but this is not correct.

What program were you using? You shouldn't worry.

Normally msgplus wouldn't be detected as spyware or adware. Maybe you can just exclude it from future scans

http://www.shareup.com/spyware/anti-spy.html - Here's a link, but it doesn't appear to be freeware.
