    "OXYMORON"=something that does exactly the opposite of what it says on the tin.

    this program "spywarenuker" claims to find and delete spyware.
    but it comes from an advertising company which specialises in installing spy/adware on computers. :p
    i downloaded and ran this program and then ran spybot s&d which we know works well.spybot found 6 instances of spyware relating to good old "spywarenuker".:rolleyes:
    so i thought it important to make the good people on T.S.G aware of this scam.
    more info here,thanx to tpb for the link;)

    Good job with the heads up info about spywarenuker.... just another example that not all that glitters is gold. ;)

    Excellent discussion (three pages now) going on over at the spywareinfo link that you posted here :eek:

    Spyware, browser redirects, homepage hijackers, popup ads, apps trying to call the mothership. It's getting really ugly.
