    Some friends have been sending me emails at the bottom of which Incredimail has an invitation to get yourself free animated emoticons.

    I have heard that Incredimail is a source of spyware (and when a friend installed the program on her 'puter, it totally went on the fritz, and she had to get it reformatted).

    Question: would it be inadvisable to get the emoticons from them? And if so, is there any animated emoticon freeware sites that would be safe?

    Thanx in advance 4 any info on this.

    It could be not from Incredimail itself but like an autosignature from their ISP which advertises something (in your case animated emoticons) .

    I have used incredimail in the past, but not now because I found it quite a slow program to open etc. but I have to say in the time I used it ( couple of years or so) I never found any spyware or adware associated with it. Likewise I know someone who still uses it and has not had any problem with spyware etc. Perhaps your source of spyware came from elsewhere?

    HT, Javi & Rollers, thanx 4 your input. I guess, then, I don't have to worry about those emoticons at the bottom of those peoples' emails. That's a relief!
