Looking for information about Aqua Dock

My little brother want me to install a software called Aqua Dock, basically its a quick launch taskbar replacement that have a Mac look and behaviour (animated icon etc.)

Before I install, I would like to know if this program is safe and free of adware or spyware.

Please advice, for any bad side effect, if any.

I read the review, Tx. M, so I assumed its free of

spyware and adware.. I hope I'm right...

By the way, how/where can I check if a program contain adware or spyware?

Thanks again

Spy Chaser or SpywareBlaster

To check a program for spyware:
1. You can use Spy Chaser program to check whether the application is known as spyware - http://camtech2000.net/Pages/SpyChaser.html (Doesn't have huge list. Only 946)

2. SpywareBlaster - select "0 items have protection disabled.." then in the Item Name, right-click>Find>type the name of the program. For example: Hotbar. If there's a result, it is spyware related or adware or hijacker. Selecting More info will give information on all items in SpywareBlaster database.

3. Search online:

In CastleCops Startup List - http://castlecops.com/StartupList.html you can search for the name of the program or filename. It will describe or link to site whether the program is related to known spyware.

Google web-search also but so far no info yet whether that Aqua Dock program is non-spyware or non-adware. Added in Openwares site last March 2004. Maybe OK?
