    Hi,

    I assume it is this file?

    O {A5366673-E8CA-11D3-9CD9-0090271D075B}: Jccatch.dll - FlashGet

    http://www.spywareinfo.com/bhos/

    FlashGet is a very dodgy bit of software. It is riddled with spyware - 9 different entries in your Registry, for a start. Favorite is the old Aureate/Radiate spy module which not only loads FlashGet with advertising, but also reports on you transparently.

    Also have a look here in:

    Programs that are suspected to be infected with spy-ware.

    You will find FlashGet in there too.

    Hope this helps.

    Yep, it is full of adware and spyware. Definitely not a false positive.

    Great, so I switch from DAP to Flashget because DAP has adware and here it comes again Flashget has spyware. Now who were the people in all those threads complaining about DAP and supporting flashget.

    Is this for the free trial or does it still have it for "registered" users?

    You can&#39;t use software to overcome the limitations of hardware.
