    TFN has this on their front page.

    This program is rife with SPYWARE. Even if you click NO it is still installed.

    This guy is more than likely getting a cut back from the company he is using for everyone who downloads his "free" app.

    It installs a program called New.net on your system and according to SPYBOT the "Functionality of
    New.net wants to give access to new non-official top-level-domains."

    Spyare is any technology that aids in gathering information about a person or organization without their knowledge. On the Internet, spyware is programming that is put in someone's computer to secretly gather information about the user and relay it to advertisers or other interested parties. Spyware can get in a computer as a software virus or as the result of installing a new program.

    Do not support this guy.

    Spyware makes me puke.
