'Relevant Knowledge' spyware: Why does Norton consider it Safe?
I recently picked up the Relevant Knowledge spyware somehow. There are a few old threads in this community about it, plus endless google articles. All consider it spyware or malware and thoroughly unwelcome. Anything which installs itself surreptitiously and comes with a non-working uninstall option is suspect enough, in my book.
A NIS 2012 'Quick Scan' found no problems. Pointing NIS directly at the C:\Program Files\Relevant Knowledge\ folder, complete with programs inside, found Norton happy there were 'No Threats'.
I think I've now manually removed it. But can someone from Norton tell me if it's as dangerous as the rest of the world believes, and if so, why NIS 2012 (updated, of course) is happy with it?
