I too am concerned about the findings of Spyware Detector which I tried this week. It identified MyWaySA as a high threat. I removed MyWay using the add/remove facility but Spyware Detector is still finding MyWaySA (high rating) and 9 related worms (medium rating).

Myway programs are a minor annoyance

Did you even look at the information posted ?

Spy Detector spydetector.net questionable license terms; flawed, high pressure scan detection & results [A: 7-24-04 / U: 7-24-04]

Personaly I would be more worried about it that myway

Sorry wrong Information
Spyware Detector not Spy Detector

Correct information:
Note on Spyware Detector: Spyware Detector was listed on this page because of concerns with false positives. Testing with the latest version of Spyware Detector indicates that the problems with earlier versions have been satisfactorily resolved. Thus, we can no longer consider Spyware Detector to be "rogue/suspect" anti-spyware.
