I was just wondering if "NetZero" has an account like G00gle does, I cannot find it if they do.
The reason I was asking is a while back some freinds of the Mrs wanted it on there comp, and when I was readinf the Aggrement this is in it.-

I was just seeing if they are as sneeeekkyyy as G00gle is, hmmm :mad:

Probably not- I bet that's in the agreement if they ever run out of money and decide to add spyware or something, assuming it's not already there.

I know Kazaa had some background tasks running with their P2P software. When I used it I just gave it one time permission to pass outbound through my firewall.

I will have to let a couple of my friends know about NetZero, they run it without a firewall and might not be happy to know about the 'spyware' or DC use of their machines...

Thanks for posting this...
