WinAntiSpyware 2005 uses false positives. It was tested on absolutely clean uninfected computer. Complete system scan was performed. The application managed to find 6 harmful registry keys and 4 malicious files associated with BearShear and Transponder adware parasites and Mouse and Key Recorder keylogger. Analysis showed that all detected objects were related to legitimate software and Windows operating system and therefore could not pose any threat. For instance, registry entry HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ed2k and its subkeys belong to harmless file sharing program eMule and not BearShare, which was never installed to our test system. The hh.exe executable recognized as a part of keylogger actually is an essential component of Windows Help service. The activation.jar archive is related to installed Oracle 220.127.116.11 database software and definitely have nothing in common with the Transponder adware. See screenshot below.
Free unregistered version refuses to remove any critical objects it finds and asks to register and purchase full product.
