    I don't know what's sadder - the fact that there are people out there industriously trying to screw complete strangers, the fact that they're so goddamned stupid that they can't even spell... or the fact that there are others who fall for it.

    Arrgh, disgusted with the whole world this morning.

    Seems to me that is the same one that Alistair was all bothered about a few weeks ago. It's a scam.

    Shed make sure you get SpywareBlaster as well and update frequently. It is an ActiveX blocker and stops most pop-ups and spyware. Believe me it works.

    If you search on Google you will find Javacool's site right away - use no spaces in "SpywareBlaster"

    Yep, I install AVG Anti Virus, Spybot and Spywareblater on every new machine I sell. Cuts down on the complaints.
