    If you are googling spybot in order to download for personal use / or looking into for company...whatever...BE WARNED!!

    I just googled it and clicked on a link to 'spybot'....started chatting via Live Chat to a nice guy to see how much it would cost for my company...but a bit dodg as kept re-assuring me that their software was great...plus they initially said it was free..then said they had licenses for 1, 5 or 10 users...

    ...clicked on the link he gave me, and realised that it wasn't spybot search and destroy, but 'antispybot2008'

    ...because I am aware of the 'Vista and XP AntiVirus2008' scams, I managed to stop myself in time...

    ...was still on Livechat though, so gave them a few choice words!!!

    They even said via Livechat that they were Microsoft certified...but there was nothing to say it on the link...

    ...bloody...gr$$$$4@@!*s
