Here are a few links from over at BBR boards, a couple I started, and one from someone else, regarding WildTangent & Viepoint Media Player.

WildTangent is no longer flagged by AdAware btw. They removed it not too long after this huhub, after WT changed things about their uninstaller and other items as well.

Not sure about Spybot tho, I wanna say it still flags it, but not 100% sure.
