    Systems Spyware Interrogator

    Systems Spyware Interrogator (SSI) looks like an interesting concept, similar to HijackThis:

    "Systems Spyware Interrogator (SSI) detects Spyware running on any home
    or enterprise system using Advanced Spyware Detection Technology. SSI
    provides these tools to identify and then recommend the best removal
    procedure for FREE. SSI looks at system "hot spots" and compares that
    information to a massive database of files known to be Spyware and
    educates itself. Once a system is interrogated the user is given current
    Spyware activities in report format. SSI lets the user upload suspicious
    files for our technicians to analyze and determine threat level. SSI
    identifies all Spyware files, know and unknown using its proprietary
    self-learning database. Statistics show that over 90% of all computers
    are infected with information robbing Spyware."

    That kind of breathless description always leaves me suspicious of what the software REALLY does. I'd wait and see how it gets evaluated by the anti-spyware community.

    Gave it a try. It identified a valid program wrongly and found several suspicious entries that neither MS nor Spybot could see. I let it report its findings back to base but there doesn't seem to be anyone there taking any note of whats being sent in as they've yet to respond after a week.

    Unimpressed so have uninstalled.
