Spybot - can it mess with your PC?

My understanding is thaty spybot is lovely, free and effective.

It has been suggested by a less than reliable source that it can make your system more vulnerable to spyware and viruses, cause your computer to give out personal info, and repaper your bedroom in pink anaglypta while you're not looking.

He's just wrong, isn't he?

Very wrong.

i believe there was a worm called Spybot (no connection to Spybot Search and Destroy) that was floating around with Kazaa. Perhaps he's getting the two confused.
