(I</A> really do suggest u go there and read this. Its worth it!!)

Apparantly there is a (I would call it a trojan) snooping app(s) being bundled with many familiar pieces of software that enables companies to snoop all yer information....

If anyone contacts the software manufacturers mentioned in the above reference post the reply you get... i'm very curious about this one.

To me this is no less than a trojan and should be dealt with in a court of law..

Also, this one is worth sending (e-mailing) to your local news-paper for their own investigation! (i hate privacey intrusions!!)

Regards, and thanks for the great tips!!
