I realize that most of the spyware we download is downloaded with our implicit acknowledgment when we download programs. Usually the acknowledgment is buried in the terms of service that most people have to click before we download. The spyware programmers know people don't read them. But, because it's so hidden and difficult to remove and the popups are an unorthodox form of advertising, especially with the prevelance of pop-up blockers. In addition, they make it so difficult to remove by burying it in .dat files. With this type of behavior, how do they get companies like Fox, which is advertising on xlime.offerthis.com, to advertise in these unorthodox internal pop-ups? Why do the companies trust them so much? These ads must be extremely effective. Would it be advantageous to go after the companies with negative letters and emails about their advertising with these spyware programs?
