false positive

Hi,

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
(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\ed2k).

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.
