I initially posted this as part of the BeFree / parasiteware contract change thread in the BeFree forum, but realized it was probably OT there and was more appropriate here. I know there are a few different spyware detection programs out there, but it appears that refrence to AdAware has scrolled off the first page on this sub-board. This is probably just a re-hash for the old-timers, but for anyone just arriving...

Although I am loath to give up any real-estate on my pages, perhaps one of the best approaches to scum-ware will be to fight back directly.
A text link or two prominant on your welcome or news pages, with teaser information about "spyware" and a link to Lavasoft's free removal tool might be a way to reclaim at least a small amount of our visitors' purchasing activity. Granted, only a small percentage of our users will follow the link and install the software (depends on how well you pique their interest with your copy), but 30% of $1000 in lost sales is $300.

I always wonder about that page. Theres this long list of scumware and its 'sponsored by TigerDirect'. Which sounds a bit unfortunate. Maybe some new wording is in order?
