Adware Companies Call Up The Reinforcements - War Goes To Court

Adware. It's enough to drive you crazy. Those annoying pop-up ads and tracking software that can ruin your computer. So much so that Congress is expected to pass laws to make it illegal to install without giving you the chance to avoid installing it, and also giving you the instructions on how to uninstall it.

That's if your representative can figure out how to spell "internet" in the statute. While you're waiting for Congress, you can protect yourself with Ad-aware and remove the garbage before it settles in for a long winter's nap.

In fact, adware has gotten so cutthroat that adware companies are now replacing each other's ads with their own. Now, the gutter rats are duking it out in court, claiming that because one ad company deleted the other ad company's adware from yours and my computers, the deleted ad company's income has dropped.

My heart's bleeding.
