Spyware Warrior: Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products & Web Sites: Here’s a list of programs you should always check in you ever get the urge to use a spyware program you’ve never heard of.

Some of the products listed on this page simply do not provide proven, reliable anti-spyware protection or may be prone to ridiculous false positives. Others may use unfair, deceptive, high pressure sales tactics to scare up sales from gullible, confused users. A very few of these products are either associated with known distributors of spyware/adware or have been known to install spyware/adware themselves.
