I mixed up the product names, sorry about that. Why would anybody use such
similar names anyway? :)

FreeFileOpener is the violator as you can see from my initial report.

I also checked FreeFileViewer, and they are in full compliance as far as I can
see. Content of a fresh install from June 25th 2011:
