I agree with the previous posts. Gator is evil. They are unscrupulous in the way they infect peoples computers without their knowledge. They have recently stooped to getting a certificate for their active x controls so they can avoid the unsigned active x security. Now, if you are set to allow signed active x controls to run, you will get gator auto installed on your system without ever getting prompted if you visit any of the many websites that distribute this crap for them. Bad bad stuff. That said, I've never installed their software so I have no idea what it does so I can't recommend anything to replace it. If you want to post the things that gator does that you are looking to replace, perhaps you could get several recommendations.

Is that true? If so, is there a similar program? (for the same price - free).
