Noooo...I just read that my favorite download manager is SPYWARE..

Is this true? The site is also flagged "yellow" by SiteAdvisor.

And it's supposed to have some adware, but I haven't been getting any ads. And SpyBot and AdAware always come up clean(expect for some tracking cookies)..

Should I uninstall FlashGet?

"FlashGet (formerly known as JetCar, from the literal translation of the Chinese phrase 快車) is a freeware download manager for Microsoft Windows. It was originally available in either paid or advert-supported versions, the latter of which included an Internet Explorer BHO and led to some labelling it as spyware."

You read it right.The new version (1.9.6) contains bad stuff.So,just switch back to classic version (1.73).
Most people are only alive because it is illegal to shoot them.
