All In One Secretmaker problem?

Downloaded and installed All-In-one Secretmaker. I'm very impressed with all of the product's features and capabilities.

However, there are a couple of things I find disturbing.

While doing a scan with PCTools Spyware Doctor, the program identified a problem in the product. It found EBlaster e-mail recorder and key logger in the file Secretmaker.exe

Another issue is that after installing the program, the NETBIOS Service was turned on, after WinXP Service Pack 2 had deactivated it. This was found by the resident protection features of MS Anti-Spyware.

The Resident Agents in Microsoft's AntiSpyware (Beta1), found and blocked an attempt to add a website to the Trusted Zone in IE 6. Following is the Registry key affected:
Registry Key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\1gb.ru\people

These issues concern me because they are all identified as threats by other programs. Does anyone else have any input on this, or am I being paranoid?

I hope I'm being paranoid.

I think paranoid is ok in this case.

I would like to understand what is ther real business for secretmaker. Does they record email address in a list for sale?

I understand that Microsoft release Antispyware in order to protect the investors but secretmaker ....

Do you have any response or other reference about that program.

I have heard of the program but I don't know anyone that uses it so I don't know much about it. I googled it and didn't see anything really bad about it. This link tells about secretmaker.exe
http://castlecops.com/s8699-secretmaker_exe.html

The program advertises about the NETBIOS protection so that part of it is legit PROBABLY. You can read both the publisher's statement about it and download.com's editor's reviews on this link.

As far as what MSAS found, that would make me nervous too. Maybe somebody else that knows more about the program will respond.

Well, between the fact that the program tried to list a site (in Russia) as a trusted zone, and the results reported by other programs, and the fact that the program was using as much as 92% of svailable resources, we un-installed it.
