Strange! Antispyware infected with spyware?

I decided to try and test spyware cease.I open firefox...
I search in google to find that WOT the safe page addon didn't like the website (capture 1)
I said never mind and i click <<ignore warning and go to the site>>.(capture 2)
So i download the spyware cease setup and i scan the file with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and....see yourself the result (capture 3)
Is something wrong?
Is a fault alert?
What?

FYI spyware cease is malware. It has a bad rating on a lot of forums and test sites.

It's a rogue antispyware program. Meaning=Bad.

Not recommended to use weird, non popular antispyware/antivirus programs. Stick with the more known ones, that are proven safe. Malwarebytes, SuperAntispyware, etc.

There is a reason why the name of that program is "Spyware Cease"....It ceased to be a spyware to infect your computer.

WOT tells you that the website is untrustworthy, you ignore the warning and now ask "Is something wrong?" You're kidding right ....honestly what did you expect?

Yes, please if you don't know that the website is 100% safe, don't ignore warnings.

BTW, Spyware Cease is on CNET. Not trusting them ever again, not that I did much in the first place.

I would not use it.

With that being said:

There is great debate on whether it is a rouge app or not. I haven't been able to find a definitive answer yet.
