Spyware

Yuck. Allow me to note that while spyware is always difficult to remove, it's even more difficult to help a mostly-computer-illiterate (she can make it run Outlook Express, Internet Explorer, Word, and that's about it) aunt remove it over the telephone.

Gator is insidious. It took down her entire Internet connection when we blocked it with Norton, and then vanished from the block list...

Gah. Let's all give a big "FUCK YOU" to whoever the asshole is who thought spyware was a reasonable idea.
