This screenshot displays a list of all spyware/adware found. On the right hand side is a description of the type of 'threat' discovered. Note that in many instances, Microsoft AntiSpyware will designate a tagged program as 'Very High Risk'. This assessment is even assigned to benign adware programs the user has agreed to install in exchange for free software.
