I wonder if it's ad and spyware free!:eek:

I had the Xupiter on my PC, and have no idea where I picked it up from.

Hi John:

I had Xupiter also. Guess what? Spyware doesn't come only from downloads. When I got mine I had d/l'ed nothing. It came from a webpage I had browsed while looking for a certain picture (and no, it wasn't XXX).

Fortunately I noticed a new toolbar on IE and immediately ran spybot, which nuked it dead!

I down loaded this in mid Dec without getting xupiter. Agree it is a very nice program. As to other spyware with it I don't know.
