I have a friend who was using the CutList Plus program who says that it is
evidently installing a piece of spyware/malware when it is installed. He
does have their 60.00 dollar license as well. Has anyone else seen this?
He says it was found by Spybot Search and Destroy and Adaware. Please let
Thanks in Advance,
I run both Spybot and AdAware frequently, and I don't remember either one
having flagged CutList Plus or any of its components.
OTOH, it has been about a year since I installed CLP, and many things could
have happened in a year, for example
a) If Spybot or AdAware flagged something right after I installed CLP, I could
have forgotten about it by now
b) the vendor may have deliberately included some sort of tracking software
with new versions of CLP that wasn't there when I downloaded it
c) the vendor's server may have been hacked
I'm running CutList Plus version WD-5.5.14, if that's any help.

Thanks, Doug and Leon, for your excellent suggestions. I will keep them in
mind and move forward cautiously. I hate spyware with a passion second only
to my love of life and country. Have a great day.
Todd Peterson, the man in charge at Bridgewood Design, publishers of Cut
List Plus would know and seems honest, at least with my many dealings with
him. E-mail him. He normally returns my e-mails within 24 hours, most of
the time much sooner. I use the commercial version of this program and have
no problems with spy ware.
Be aware that Spybot Search and Destroy sometimes thinks AdAware is spyware.
IIRC Spybot thinks some cookies are spyware. Perhaps a cookie from the
Bridgewood site brought up the red flag.

Both spytrackers have their own forum. Try them.
Be warned. They are righteous folk. Be ready to control your temper,
be questioned in detail, ntn to question their ethos...etc etc
