Default Is this AD company ever going to stop?

I'm getting really pissed being asked to install their software all the time.
I get it all the time when searching for something in the internet. It comes up as some security warning. Has this guys been sued yet?

Gator used to be relevant, before the auto-complete. Now they're totally spyware..

Ya, make sure you use Adaware. I don't know what sites your going too, but I uses IE6sp1 myself and rarely see any gator popups? However I am using Google Toolbar with the popup blocker installed so maybe that helps.

Spybot: Search and Destroy is another good spyware killer.

Thanks for posting that. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to want to work with ZoneAlarm Pro 4.0.146.029 It says it can't find them.
