    Stream Cast claims that it is not gathering personal data.

    Fair enough, but I would not want an extra step in my browsing process. This has the potential of causing problems both with IE itself and with the fact that if the redirectors site experiences problems, it could cause page not found errors or slow down your browsing to a site. This in turn could make a person think that something might be wrong with thier computer when it is something from outside.

    I don't use any of them. The less holes I poke in my firewall the better.

    I have been burned once several years ago with being hacked. I am paranoid now.

    er, just uninstalled Morpheus. :(

    What I've done is asked at Lavasoft if the new reference file removes the spyware and the program works. As soon as I find out, I'll post here.
