The product that backups any registry change made, removes orphaned references, scans hard drive for invalid and incorrect program shortcuts besides giving regular live updates will hit the market in a full-fledged scale very soon. It is currently in the test-marketing phase.
The company has launched Max Spyware Detector version 2.0 today.
Max Secure Software will also be adding another 100 people to its headcount of 40 people in India that take care of 100 per cent development functions for the company.
International expansion is another item on its agenda and it would be setting up a beachhead base in London soon.
"Talks are in progress and we would make the announcements as soon as they materialize," informed Sanjay Pradhan, founder and CEO of the Pune-based company that has a marketing office in Santa Clara, USA.

An enterprise version of its offering is also expected in the next six to nine months, informed Pradhan.
"Thank you for your assistance. Your software is wonderful. I forgot how wonderful until I changed my hard drive and it didn't recognize the registration. My PC slowed down within a day and started getting adware popup. I'm running an anti-virus with firewall and I tried scanning with another spyware software. It didn't fix it. I ran yours software and it found 23 files the other software missed. I am now running up to speed with no pop-ups. Plus your software keeps it running well. I see you tech support is excellent as well. Very good response. Thank you again for your help.Chris
