Hi all. I found this thing in my add or remove programs tonight. With a name like that it can't be good. Are there special instructions for getting rid of it or can I just uninstall it? Thanks.

You should use Spybot Search and Destroy to remove this pest, from what I can find, it is a ad serving program that communicates and shares your personal information with a third party server. It does not have any good function, That is unless that you consider making Money for someone in Costa Rica good.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently

Many malware programs can be uninstalled by using Add/Remove Programs so start there first.

Then follow up with Spybot and a scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free in "SAFE MODE".

If it will not uninstall via Add/Remove, then use Spybot and SUPERAntispyware.
