Re: NS Keylogger in Spywareblaster?

This is a false-positive from Microsoft Anti-Spyware - that's just the SpywareBlaster uninstall file.
If you used Microsoft/Giant Anti-Spyware to remove the uninstaller, you should probably reinstall SpywareBlaster over-the-top to replace the file.

This is also another good example of why you should examine every detection anti-spyware products make, and if something doesn't look right - take it with a grain of salt. This certainly isn't the first time an anti-spyware product has made a false-detection, and I doubt it'll be the last.

I'm just rather disappointed that this didn't get caught in whatever "quality-control" the MS AS definitions go through.

Best regards,
