Ask Wants Anti-Spyware Companies To Lift Warnings

by , Comments

Spotted via Threadwatch, Ask Jeeves Disputes Anti-Spyware Flaggings from eWeek looks at Ask Jeeves asking at least two anti-spyware companies to stop flagging Ask's software with warnings. The companies have apparently refused to do so. Once calls Ask products "potentially unwanted" rather than flagging them as "spyware" or "adware." Bundling issues were raised as a main concern for pushback by the companies. IE, the software itself may be fine, but the companies see problems with how it gets out to users. The story notes that other spyware detection tools such as those from Microsoft and Lavasoft don't flag Ask's products.
