Something needs to be done about companies who place sneaky adserve programs on ones computer with out permission. These programs embed themselves in the main registry and cannot be erased or uninstalled. They open the user's computer to an avalance of pop up ads and they collect and transmit data about the user's computer use. This is akin to having your phone bugged and your phone conversations constantly interrupted. Do Something About It.
