    Yahoo strengthened its new anti-spyware application to detect pop-up advertising software, including that of its longtime partner Claria, formerly known as Gator
    Got any message ..??
    Btw .. I wasnt using Yahoo Toolbar ..So I dont know how is it going to affect those using it ..

    All they want to tell is they have got some Anti Spyware thingy built in Yahoo Toolbar now ..and its not gonna support Gator now ..

    Yeah Gator is a fairly suspect software ! Installs with shareware and stuff and then targets Ads on the users PC. It's good that Yahoo is taking action against them by classifying Gator as adware !!
