false positive


James Johnston


MS Antispyware detected "eDonkey 2000" on my computer.
It states that it "installs with adware". But I'm not
using eDonkey2000; MS Spyware misdetected it. That piece
of software has never touched my system.

I'm actually using eMule (http://emule.sourceforge.net).
eMule is an open-source replacement for eDonkey that does
not have any spyware. The only reason AntiSpyware
detected this as eDonkey was the registry entries to
register the ed2k protocol

If AntiSpyware is going to label eMule as spyware then
they should at least label it correctly. But I see no
need for this since eMule does not bundle any spyware.
