Um...OK. Man, these AntiSpyware updates make the product less and less helpful.

Right!
I'll replace it with new software soon.

So does Microsoft consider the time travel portion of their beta a "feature" or "bug"?

Probably got some legacy stuff from the version that expired on July 31? Uninstall completely then reinstall the latest. Or switch. :)

Well, geez, Scott, from the tray in your screenshot, it looks like you had three instances of AntiSpyware going. That's going to make it expire three times as fast! ;)

Hahaha Brian I was just about to mention that. It's odd though I run MS Antispyware and it's never caught anything. Adsense is always picking things up though!

I've noticed that anitspyware creates new tray icons. It's like it's caught an exception and quit, restarted itself and not cleaned the tray. if you hover over the icons all but one of them disapear (one at a time though so it can take a while to clean the tray)

Those devs in the anti-spyware group have a great sense of humor. Don't you get the joke? ;-)
