    Thanks for the link Trust. You wouldn't happen to know if this is (Michael Zuvio)?

    Just asking because... not only did I have that Open Site software on my computer but one of the pop-ups that was generated was for globat web hosting. When I check out the affiliate section (on his globat pop-up) and go to the sign up section, Michael Zuvio would be my "upline". I've also "caught" his Commission Junction affiliate link (
    That sh*t is p*ssing me off. Not only are my commissions being grabbed (I don't know how to tell if he's overwriting cookies but when his pop-up comes up, after my "globat affiliate site" comes up, I can only asume that my cookie is being overwritten), I think Zuvio's making a couple bucks everytime I make a sale.

    Put these guys through our standard test...install on test computer, uninstall via Settings/Control panel. Very basic. As it turns out, yes, Zuvio is listed (as Open Site). So I was able to uninstall it...however, a subsequent search showed Open Site still present in Program Files. Activities like this put me on edge. I can not determine a single good, ethical reason why a consuemr should not be allowed to do a complete, clean uninstall.

    Furthermore, it would appear that Zuvio is also domain squatting, but I don't understand enough of how the registeries work to translate this. Can someone explain this to me?

    Thanks for the heads-up on this character. I've actually emailed him/them a couple of times to explain his methods and how he achieves such high which I received zero response.
