Spy Bot and Gator

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Richard Jordan, Aug 1, 2003.

  1. I like the password functionality of Gator, but hate their spyware.
    If I install Spy Bot, can I keep the password reminders, but stop the
    spyware?

    TIA,
    Richard

    Try it. Install Spybot S&D let it remove the Gator spyware, and see if the
    password functions of the Gator E-wallet still work. If it don't work then
    you'll have to find another way of storing your passwords.

    Try Roboform instead. All the functionality, none of the snooping.

    www.roboform.com in case you were wondering

  8. Hello,
    Get rid of Gator. Find another way to remember passwords. There are all
    kinds of shareware/freeware
    programs on the Internet. Either use Ad-Aware or Spybot, but run one of them
    to remove this most
    insidious piece of trash. Or, if you don't mind spyware on your machine and
    the resulting Spam E-Mail
    and pop-up's. not to mention a program tracking your every move while
    on-line, leave it in place.

    Oh yes, if you uninstall using add/remove programs in control panel, Gator
    will tell you it has
    been successfully uninstalled. Run Ad-Aware or Spybot and you will see that
    the spyware portions
    remain on your system. The question you must ask yourself really concerns
    whether you like the
    program well enough to leave it on your system or not. It's your computer.

    I haven't got Gator.
    I can remember my passwords fine, thank you.
    You don't say!
    As I said, I haven't got Gator.
    Ahem... I haven't got Gator.
    HELLO! I haven't GOT Gator.
    This would be the spyware portions of Gator, WHICH I HAVEN'T GOT, yes?
    Can I keep it, then?
