Default Spyware from Everest

Okay, I ran spybot and this is what came up. It looks like the program is a little overzealous. How bad is all this stuff?

It's fixing ogg, txt and ico files! ... what kind of spyware would hide in those files? Seems like your spyware program is just farting out stuff. I wouldn't be worried.

Default problems with everest poker

i have had problems with this site, firstly there is some adware or spyware that comes with the program, you can run the program and nod32 at the same time.
secondly while uploading funds using moneybookers i had warning messages from explorer saying the security certificate wasn't valid and that my information could be read by a third party. (i have uploaded funds this way on full tilt, cake poker pkr and pokerstars and have never had any problems), it was 100% clean and safe with the other sites, but not everest.
then i have my account frozen, haven't seen my money, obviously because of a flaw in their own program.
i have read other threads with other people having similar things happen to them.
there are a lot of clean and safe poker rooms out there, why use one with these sorts of problems.

ah, yes, and well-known issue...

Spybot marks the Everest Software every now and then as spyware. I had this 2 times last year. Everest is aware of the problem, yet wont do anything about it

I personally ignore it. Next update of Spybot should fix that...

Because of the fish, obv...

I personally never had Problems with the software/cash transfers. But, yes, there are lot of other rooms, so if you are not comfortable playing there, well, you dont have to


EDIT:
ARF, fooled by a gravedigger

better look at the OP date first, next time
