    Has anyone heard anything about this?
    http://www.adnuker.com/
    Is it a hijacker on my browser?
    It's freeware, so there is no warrenty, but will it mess with my browser settings or ruin it in some way?
    It's a free download for unlimited use, but then they say "order".
    Does that mean "Upgrade or keep the nag screen."?

    Lastly, what type of server does Hotmail use?
    They don't specify Web based names.

    Well, the order now page says this

    I can't tell ya much, but I find it a little disturbing that there is no privacy policy whatsoever. If one of them is interested, one of our security experts around here might fiddle with the thing and see what it does.

    I'd really appreciate it if they did.
    At first glance it looked like just what I needed, so I was about to download it without checking it out with you guys.
    When I read it resides on your browser toolbar, the name "Xupiter" kept going through my mind.
    Could this be like that, another Orbit Xplore?
    Another thing, what happens if I do contact the company?
    As you said, they have no privacy policy, and I didn't even see a TOS anywhere.

    User opinion from Download.com:

    There are many more reviews like that.
    I'm just quoting this one for it's reference to WindowsME.

    It is a pretty big install. It uses a BHO to integrate in the browser. Which is only logical I guess. AdShield and others use the same method (yes, Xupiter to :) )

    I didn't have the CLSID of that BHO so I had to install it.

    It looks safe to me. I didn't test it's effectiveness.

    The Toolbar looks a bit, well errr, needs some work. ;)

    I do have a full Total Uninstall log if you are interested.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    If you think the uninstall log would help, that would be nice, although after the CNet reviews, I'm a little uneasy about downloading Ad Nuker.

    Judging from what we've seen so far, I reckon there's probably some better options out there ;)

    I'm sorry to have made you go to the trouble of doing that. :oops:
    I think I'll just keep looking.
    Until the suspected exploit or hijacker is discovered and fixed, I'll be using something else. :rolleyes:
    I also noticed it was shareware last month, but not anymore.
