Is cyber Defender Free a rogue program? I got a email telling about this free program. In the email they say this program runs with small ads that are completely safe and don't get in the way.

There are debates that it is rogue, however the person behind it is trying to prove that it is not. I wouldn't recommend it is the bottom line. Once the complete analysis is done, I will post it on the blog.

There are some issues about that program right now.

see the activity at castlecops dot com:

the discussion has been very LIVELY and sometimes HOSTILE.

of course;
you be the JUDGE of it, as usual.

The program is adware, both versions pure and simple. There are also several other undesirable things it does to your system. All of which will be posted in approximately one hour in the thread posted by Pan_Irish and other sites as well. Maybe even here. ;)

@guy3949
If you still have the email, could you please post it to these forums?
Any evidence pointing in either direction will help guide this debate.

Here is the email.

If I'm understanding everything correctly, the email was sent after somebody you knew used the "tell a friend" feature. I'm glad nobody has to think that this was spam. Thanks for posting the email.

The other thing in the email that made me not trust this program was that they say it works with your existing security software. I heard having more then one antivirus may conflict with each other.

It was either that or "May possibly work with some software, however, there are chances that'll it'll just suck and will start causing errors to your other programs." ;) People write what sounds good. Brute honesty is hard to come by these days.

Having more than one AV program active is bad. CyberDefender is not an AntiVirus program. I am in no way endorsing this program either. I do not recommend you use it ever.
