Upgraded to Fireshot .55 on Firefox 2.0.0.15 today and accepted the option to add the application to Internet Explorer 7 in Win XP Professional SP2, English. Tested and worked fine on both browsers. 

Spyware Terminator 2.2.1.433 then ran a scan and identified the following: 

Threat Name: ZToolbar
Detected Item: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Explorer Bars\{A6790AA5-C6C7-4BCF-A46D-0FDAC4EA90EB}
Detected Item: HKCR\CLSID\{A6790AA5-C6C7-4BCF-A46D-0FDAC4EA90EB}
Detected Item: HKCR\FireShot.StockBar.1
Detected Item: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Extensions\{A6790AA5-C6C7-4BCF-A46D-0FDAC4EA90EB}

I am tempted to report this as a 'false positive' since I have none of the ztoolbar.dll files listed. It does, however, detect the Fireshot.Stockbar.1.

Any advice would be much welcomed.  Thank you.

Spybot detecting the CLSID {A6790AA5-C6C7-4BCF-A46D-0FDAC4EA90EB} as AzeSearch (ZToolbar) too.

I think there are many security tools, which will recognize the same. Perhaps it's easier to use a different CLSID.

Ah.. you think, these CLSIDs were somehow banned due to belonging to malware?

Just googled for "A6790AA5-C6C7-4BCF-A46D-0FDAC4EA90EB". Many entries.
