I have installed MSN Messenger plus, and after scanning with Microsoft Antispyware it found one piece of spyware which was caused by msn messenger plus it has a moderate threat level and is saying that it requires attention, I chose to ignore it as I want to keep it, any ideas?

What was the spyware called?

Uninstall Messenger Plus.

Clean up the spyware.

Reinstall Messenger Plus (if you must) paying careful attention NOT to accept the "extras" (spyware) that it wants to install.

It is called Messenger Plus (Software Bundler) and has two entries in Program Files and loads of registry entries. I never choose the option to install the sponsers during installation so can't understand why this is showing as spyware?

This still appears as spyware, I want to keep msn messenger plus, is having it on my system doing any damage? MS antispyware said it is a threat, whilst ad aware and spybot don't pick it up!
