Default Spyware detector registers as spyware in other detectors

Although I use mainly one remover, I have installed a couple of diff removers on my system to try them out, whilst I have had diff spyware programs installed I have noticed that spyhunter is reported as spyware by other detector programs ?? anyone else noticed this
