    Think yourself lucky, i d/loaded the new edonkey client today, this comes with a MANDATORY "when u save" little ditty.

    Fair enough you can block it with your firewall, but it won't uninstall properly.

    Savenow is not a virus but adware by nature. The problem with anti-virus programs at the minute is that people aren't satisfied if their searches come up negative, so they put in checks for adware, cookies etc just so it looks like it's doing something.

    Really grinds my gears actually, especially with spybot
