BS and libel about my app

Just saw on AdvancedUninstaller.com an entry for one of my apps that states:

"<Product> has the habit of leaving behind some leftovers.
Open regedit.exe in order to delete the following registry values:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CmdAgent\..."

Such BS and libel!  My products don't even write to HKLM at all, and certainly doesn't have a habit of leaving leftovers behind.

Damn I wish I had money to sue that website!

People lie and people are incompetent. The fact that some random piece of shareware makes an incorrect statement about your app may or may not be intentional or malicious.

Contact them. If they allow comments, then comment.

Well, on another subject... I released another app in late February for $29.99 and got my first sale for it yesterday!  Woohoo!  :)  So that's 5 x $9.99 sales of one app, and 1 x $29.99 sale for the other.  I'm very happy so far, especially since the website was only launched in January.

Thanks, Emily!  :)  The proof (after PayPal takes their cut of the $29.99 fee):  http://i.imgur.com/DyWBqNV.png
