    I was asked my opinion about this program. I had never heard of it so I Googled it. This is what I found.

    The person asking my opinion raved about it because it found things AdAware and Spybot missed. Spywarewarrior has a different take on it. Do they REALLY send false SPY reports to get you to buy it?

    It used to have a lot of false positives. It was their affiliates that did the false advertising but that's mostly stopped now. Its not nearly as bad as it used to be but IMO its still not as good as Spybot, AdAware, Ewido, Spysweeper.
