Good heavens things seem to install an awful lot of spyware these days. I'm not so worried about them finding out personal information. The only way to be free from spies and sabateurs on the Internet, is never to use the Internet to begin with. I can understand not deliberately divulging personal information, but there are some people who take the whole 'net privacy thing to ridiculous extremes. It's not safe out there kids, and believing that you are safe is a fantasy. Take precautions, certainly, but don't believe for a second that you're totally secure. Oh, and download Ad-Aware.
