We have yet to receive an official answer from Microsoft regarding the problems caused by their AntiSpyware product, however, it seems that they have finally started to realize some of their mistakes! An update was made to the spyware definition files on September 23rd and the msgplus.exe program is not detected as a threat at run time anymore! (like this: see previous warning
) this is a huge success
for Messenger Plus! as this problem was the very reason that triggered the need for a petition in August. This step back from MSAS is proof alone that some parts of the add-on were indeed flagged incorrectly and that we didn't fight for nothing. You can be sure that the support you gave to Messenger Plus! on so many internet sites and forums, in addition to the petition, is what made this change a reality. In any case, msgplus.exe is not falsely accused of things it does not do anymore and that's all what matters.
We would like to thank Microsoft for taking this matter seriously and not ignoring what their users had to say about this issue. There are still several problems surrounding the detection and removal of Messenger Plus! and its sponsor program but we hope that we will be able to work on that together as well in the near future.
