    Sweeeet... "The FTC alleges that the spyware tracked users' Internet surfing destinations, altered home page settings, inserted new toolbars into browsers and forced pop-up ads to appear. In addition, the FTC claims that once the spyware was loaded on consumers' computers, it interfered with the functioning of the computer.

    Defendants named in the FTC complaint are Enternet Media and Conspy & Co. Individuals named include Lida Rohbani, also known as Linda Rohhani and Lida Hakimi; Nima Hakimi; and Baback Hakimi, also known as Bobby Rohbani and Bobby Hakimi.

    The affiliate charged in the complaint is Nicholas C. Albert, doing business as Iwebtunes and www.iwebtunes.com, based in Ohio. The FTC said the case was brought with the assistance of the Microsoft, Google and Webroot Software.
