Yahoo! has released a new toolbar with antispy. I just wanted to know if anyone has downloaded it yet and how it works.

What follows is an artical during my own ongoing research throughout the Internet:

Yahoo Plays Favorites with Some Adware
Source:
http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1605579,00.asp

Quote:
...Dave Methvin, chief technology officer at PC Pitstop LLC, said he is concerned with Yahoo's contradiction in offering a spyware-fighting tool while also aligning with one of the biggest purveyors of adware programs. ...


The artical goes on to say:
Quote:
...PC Pitstop, a Dakota Dunes, S.D., company that runs a Web site for PC diagnostics, last year settled a libel lawsuit filed by Claria over its public criticism of Claria and its distribution methods.

"It's great that they're giving away a free anti-spyware toolbar," Methvin said of Yahoo. "I just wish that they wouldn't turn around and, with the other hand, hand Gator one-third of its revenue." ...
