Does it warn about Messenger Plus the same way the non-public beta did?

Dodgy MS:

First of all: here is a direct link: http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/1/5/815d...SpywareInstall.exe

I downloaded it. It works very well. I looks extremly nice en more professional then Ad-aware.. now let's hope they make it a free utility.. and get a spyware definitions database as large as ad-aware :)

It still detects Msgplus as dangerous...

Messenger Plus!
Type: Adware Bundler
Threat Level: High
Author: Patchou

Description: Messenger Plus! is a add-on for MSN Messenger. Messenger Plus! installs an OPTIONAL adware called C2Media which is also known as LOP.com.

Advice: This software is not necessarily adware. However, it does install other adware programs as well as perform potential hazardous actions on your computer. In either case this software is not to be trusted.
Since this application gives you the option to not install the adware that comes bundled, we recommend ignoring it.

About Adware Bundler: A Bundler is a software program that installs adware on your computer either with your permission or without. Most of the software classified as a bundler requires that the adware program(s) be installed in order for the actual software to complete installation or run. In addition in most cases if the adware is removed the software will seize to function as well.


And it found 3363 register keys related to Msgplus... that's probably all of them :dodgy:

EDIT:

BTW.. this sentence does not make sense: Messenger Plus! installs an OPTIONAL adware called C2Media which is also known as LOP.com.

It should be something The Messenger Plus! installer gives you an OPTION to install OPTIONAL adware called C2Media bla blap

EDIT2:

Nice nice nice.. I really like the way MS AntiSpyware also contains all the option HijackThis has, like restoring search / start page, controlling all downloaded Active X components, toolbars, BHO's etc. Check this second screenie in my next post.

Wow.. it even has a Tracks eraser tool in it to clear all sorts of history files, such as Windows resent documents, Windows temporary files, Windows Media Player history files, but also for 3rd party programs such as WinRar en adobe reader..

It is a check which checks if ur windows has a legal key. BUT.. for this download you don't have to do it. Just click continue.. then choose "No, do not validate Windows at this time, but take me to the download" and you can download it.

here's a direct link:
