Gator is absolutely without question spyware, and the policies and tactics of the company are utterly reprehensible. They do all they can to install their spyware on every user's system without their knowledge or to trick unwary users into installing their spyware through lies and misdirection. They are the epitome of an Internet company that crosses the line and their practices should be stopped and outlawed. IMO, of course.
