when i was practising with a log i ran into the program x-cleaner i just downloaded the latest version which got a lot of utilities in it like a schredder apsswordgenerator cookiecleaner and also an option to look for malware just to test a little how this tool works, i installed it and ran it.
suddenly i got a warning and i was devestated because in the last year no spyware ended on my computer.
that's why i looked critical to that message here's a screenshot

this tool found out that bearshare keys were on my computer but the keys he found gnutella and magnet are according to me part of things came along with the installation of shareaza which ofcourse uses the gnutella network.

So i got really two questions

do you think this is a false positive?

and what do you think of the latest version of x-cleaner

In the mean time i heard a lot of postive comments on the new x-cleaner, it's capable of dealing with a lot of adware. thank you for your reply, let's sayi just was unlucky to ran in a false positive.

All I know here is that Bearshare the Downloads software IS a problem, It may be good buy there is Viruses and Spyware on it. It is not false for Bearshare. I reccommend you download safe P2P software, such as Limewire or Ares.
