    List of Programs Containing Spyware?

    Hello, all! I was wondering if you could please post any links you use of good quality sites that you know of that contain a database of programs that contain spyware/adware/etc. I realize I could Google and turn something up like this, however the reason I am asking this here, is because I would like only sites which are high quality. With Google I could get anything... Any links are appreciated! Thank you for your time!

    I am brand new here and have just gotten an account tonight, but perhaps this should have been in the Spyware/Adware forum?

    Yeah, the rouge list is great for checking if an app is good for removing spyware, or just a front for an unscruplous vendor, if you were wondering xierox. The author, Eric Howes, probably knows more than any one person about spyware and adware. If you are looking to become an "expert" I would suggest his home page as well. You can learn how the stuff works, and his recommendations on applications, removal, etc. If you are looking for foolproof advice, follow his.
