FACT & FICTION
Recently SpywareNuker has been the victim of what
can only be described as a malicious campaign meant to discredit
what has become one of the most popular utilities for detecting
and stopping adware and Spyware.
Lots of what you see on the Internet is fiction
in its most basic form. Whether it is meant to harm, deceive or
is simply plain ignorance, the bottom line is that much of it
is simply not true. But you already know that. Please take a moment
to read the truth about SpywareNuker 2004 and you’ll see
what we mean.

Fiction: SpywareNuker is spyware
or adware itself!
FACT: Nothing could be further
from the truth. SpywareNuker has never spied on users and it never
will. SpywareNuker has never served or shown an advertisment,
and it never will. The original version of SpywareNuker was released
almost two years ago. Contained in that original EULA release
was some legal phrasing that some people interpreted as allowing
SpywareNuker to show ads or install other programs. That phrasing
was removed as soon as we were aware of it and has never returned.
Regardless, no ads were ever shown and no additional programs
were ever installed on even a single user’s PC. So if someone
claims that the EULA allows SpywareNuker to show ads or upload
additional programs, it’s simply not true.
Still not sure? Don’t take our word for
it – see for yourself by reading the complete
Fiction: TrekEight, LLC used stolen
code or a stolen database in creating SpywareNuker.
FACT: Absolutely not true.
SpywareNuker is one of the few programs that supports a full internal
team for both QA and database definitions. Every item in the SpywareNuker
database has been individually researched, tested and confirmed
by multiple members of the database AND QA teams. These teams
keep notes on every entry and are able to tell exactly how, when
and why each item in the SpywareNuker database was added.
So why would someone say this? With an earlier
version of Spyware Nuker, our database was licensed from a third
party, which has assured us that any claims of database theft
are complete falsehoods. At the time of licensing, that party
contractually warranted that the database provided to us was their
own and was in no way stolen from any other company or individual.
However, with the complaints of a database that
may have been compromised, we developed and released a completely
new version of Spyware Nuker that is 100% in-house in all respects.
Any past claims, true or false, have no bearing on the new software.
Fiction: SpywareNuker isn’t
doing anything about these allegations because they are true!
FACT: If you’ve been
reading the news online lately, you know this is false. We recently
filed suit in an effort to bring the truth to light. Further,
we intend to bring additional actions against individuals and/or
companies that continue to propagate the lies about our company
and its products.
is owned by a company that installs spyware.
FACT: Also not true. You may have read that
TrekEight, LLC is the owner of Blue Haven Media, which has been
accused of distributing spyware. In fact, TrekEight is not the
owner of Blue Haven. When TrekEight was formed in October of 2002,
it acquired several domains and properties. Blue Haven Media was
one of these properties, but it was subsequently sold to a private
Fiction: SpywareNuker is installed
surreptitiously or invisibly.
FACT: Think about it. SpywareNuker is a program
designed to help users identify spyware and adware. If it does
not make itself known, how can it alert users to spyware and adware?
SpywareNuker is only installed when a user makes a proactive choice
to scan his or her system for adware and spyware.

slows PC’s, or is bad code.
