    I need to install Xupiter for security testing and am unable to find a site which installs it. They don't do an actual install off of their own site (xupiter.com). They just set the default homepage. Anyone have any ideas?

    Go to this link and look under the heading "distribution"

    I hope you dont have to come back and start a thread "how do I get rid of Xupiter"

    I'm not seeing a 'distribution' heading on the page. Just 'Make us your homepage', FAQ, Contact Us, Home and Privacy Policy (oh..the irony). No worries about posting a 'how do I...'. This is all for testing purposes.

    Thanks for the help!

    In case you are just testing Spybot/AdAware, I did this recently (including Xupiter) and you can save yourself the pain.
    Even after running those programs, there were a ton of reg entries, bad startups and my comp kept connecting to client.alexa.com.

    Steamwiz forgot to post his link-he should get it soon.

    Well...the link it has listed to install is broken, so I'm back to square one. You think this would be easier....it sure seems to be there when you're NOT looking for it.

    I could find you another link, but you might find one quicker yourself if you go to google.com and type in Xupiter

    let me know if you want me to look

    I tried that-thousands of anti-spyware sites.
    Xupiter is the kind of spyware sites dont give you links to download because it just hides in the background. Unlike Gator, which is at least useful.
