|AOL Instant Messenger Spyware
|Posted by: AceBHound on Sep 28th, 2004 10:21 PM
|AOL's newest Instant Messenger clients seem to be installing more than just an instant messenger. Apparently it's not just AIM either, other software AOL is involved with (like Netscape) may also install this software. If you see "Viewpoint Media Player" in your Add/Remove programs.. just remove it. At least they ask you during the installation if you want to install Weatherbug. If they keep this up I'll be looking for a 3rd party instant messenging client -- especially considering how crappy AIM now looks with buddy icons turned on. Bleh.
