    WildTangents was loaded on to my machine without my knowing about it at the time. Apparently AOL's partnering with them allowed AOL to say they didn't do it.

    It installed a few pieces I still can't remove, but I don't think they are capable of reaching out and touching anything.

    I definitely did not give an OK for WildTangents software to be installed.
