    IMHO, there's a few more crapware vendors out there that need their comeupins too. :mad:

    Let's hope this trend continues. :)

    Back in October I believe they indicted some guy in New Jersey I believe, I do not have a link I just remember hearing about it on the evening news. This guy had two companies, one that made spyware and then another that made antispyware. The catch was his antspyware would remove spyware just not his.
