Yahoo is the one which, when they proviced Norton AV, put their own hole in
it to allow GAIN and its other aka names thru and didn't consider it spyware
though it constantly downloaded new SW onto your machine fo no good reason
other than tracking. I haven't trusted t hem since.
They DID admit to doing that, and buried deep in their "policies" there
was a short statement about it but it wasn't easy to find. Id' have to
wonder about the broken IE8 securities they might have played with.
Newsgroups are great places to get assistance.
But always verify important information with
other sources to be certain you have a clear
understanding of it and that it is accurate.
