    I keep getting emails from "value savings" or something, about printing out grocery coupons.

    I decided to try it (if there's anything in it I might buy) and it requires a download.

    It may be okay, but when a "download box" comes up like that I think of Gator and Comet (and xupiter) (sounds like Santa's reindeer :) )

    It's not even something that important to me. Just wondering if it's another form of spyware- tracking you? Which I'm guessing it is....
    The "download option box" comes up with this.

    Follow these quick and simple steps to install the Coupon Manager:
    Turn on your printer.
    Click the INSTALL button below to begin the installation process.
    A dialog box appears, click YES to continue.


    Wait approximately 30 seconds to complete the Coupon Manager installation. When the installation is complete your coupon automatically prints.
    Congratulations! You have successfully upgraded the Coupon Manager.

    Thanks,
    Carrie

    Starchild,
    I just accepted one of these from of all places, the Sierra Mist web Site. It did exactly what it said it was going to. I just ran spybot last night, and it didn't pick up the one that I had as spyware. But who knows how many of those things are out there.
