* MS: Is Claria spyware or not?

PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
It seems MS is denying allegations that they 'downgraded' Claria's software from spyware status in the latest version of their spyware remover:

The news comes at a sensitive time as Microsoft is reportedly in acquisition talks with Claria.

While the statement admitted Claria asked Microsoft in January to review AntiSpyware's classification of its products, the former said Redmond determined continued detection was still appropriate, and would give users the choice whether or not to remove Claria software. This was a change from the previous policy in which AntiSpyware recommended users remove Claria products.
They definitely changed something... If it were anyone but MS, I'd have wondered if Claria were threatening lawyers.
