Spy Sweeper issue
« on: January 09, 2006, 07:19:14 PM »
SpySweeper flags up Gling.wav in the sounds folder as part of "win-spy monitor"

Damn silly I know but maybe it would be worth changing the filename for the next release to avoid people accidentally deleting the sound.

I said it was damn silly

Trouble is I can't be bothered to email WebRoot with the false positive. It seems to me that the algorithms used to detect spyware are getting ever more sloppy in all products out there!
