    I notice when I bypass proxo at techtv.com spybot s&d pops up asking me if I would like to download something from AVENUE A. Is AVENUE A really spying?

    Hi notageek,

    Many seem to think so:
    http://www.safersite.com/PestInfo/a/avenuea.com_spyware_cookie.asp
    http://www.debris.com/journal/134
    Also targeted by AdAware, Spybot and SpywareBlaster.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    LOL ok Thanks Pieter. I think the people over at techtv.com needs to wake up and smell the beans. They just aired a show and had some anti spyware stuff on there. And they always praise Spybot S&D but yet they share in the spayware.
