SafeWebSurfer

by Jake Doevan - - | Type: Corrupt Anti-Spyware

SafeWebSurfer was tested on clean uninfected computer. The application has detected 2 critical registry entries related to TinyBar and BearShare adware programs. Further analysis showed that found key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\webbrowser\itbarlayout actually is associated with legitimate Microsoft Internet Explorer. It keeps safe essential settings of the web browser and doesn’t possess any threat. Another detected item HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\ed2k belongs to harmless eMule peer-to-peer program. It is required to support ed2k protocol and special links on certain web sites. BearShare file sharing application was never installed to our test system. Screenshot provided below is a clear evidence that SafeWebSurfer uses false positives.

SafeWebSurfer uses outdated spyware definitions database released in August, 2004. We tried to update it from within the program, but update utility reported that we have “the latest definitions”. Note that the application was tested in April, 2005.

The program is a clone of The Spyware Detective, PC AdWare SpyWare Removal, Super Spyware Remover and other corrupt antispyware products. It uses the same reference database, has almost identical interface and produces similar scan results.

The official site is safewebsurfer.com. There you can find fully functional trial version that expires after 30 days.

We DO NOT recommend purchasing or using this software.
