Last week, noted independent spyware researcher Ben Edelman spotted, logged, and recorded a download of 180's Zango software...Zango was installed, said Edelman, without any user confirmation or consent. Sunbelt Software, a Florida-based anti-spyware software maker, confirmed Edelman's account Tuesday.

Those folks should find a real job and quit writing junk to invade computers. I will never understand how they expect to make any money or friends by installing things you don't want. Same with popups. I wonder if anyone ever purchase anything from a popup?
Spike's advice: Backup your data routinely.
