    Re: eAnthology/eAcceleration

    Hi Phil

    A quick search indicates that both are marketing tools that are often attached to downloads to automatically install without permission, that is unless you read all of the "Agreement" that came with the download.

    You can get a little more info here.

    Have a Great day!!!

    eAnthology/eAcceleration

    I just ran Pest Patrol & it listed eAcceleration by eAnthology as spyware. A search on Google indicates that eaccleration is an antispyware tool. I'm confused. I also don't know how it got on my system. (I installed Spybot recently, but haven't used it, yet.) Anyone know whether eacceleration is something I should remove?
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: eAnthology/eAcceleration

    Thanks, Ken. That article refers to Stop Sign, so I'll have to check if I have that. I'm wondering how I got it for a second time. I'll have to start running SpyBot & Pest Patrol more often.

    Re: eAnthology/eAcceleration

    Hi again Phil

    My reasoning for suggesting the link was:
    The author of the article was writing about a response he had gotten from "support@eacceleration.com".
    The response refered to "Stop Sign" as an </u>"eAnthology"</u> program.

    You could also try "www.eanthology.net" and "www.eacceleration.com" directly......I think I'd run Spybot immediately afterwards and again after my next boot.

    Have a Great day!!!

    Re: eAnthology/eAcceleration

    Hi Phil

    Here are 2 more sites with some info: one, two.

    Now for the real roo-poo on the subject, go here.
    It gets really interesting at the last posting on page 2, but you should read all posts from the start of page one to be able to follow later posts. I've just spent an hour reading through to mid page 5 and have found the antics of eAnthology fascinating. Tomorrow night I'll continue my bedtime story...I can hardly wait!!!!

    Have a Great day!!!
    Ken

    Hmm. The more I read and hear about eAcceleration the smellier it gets. <img src=/S/duck.gif border=0 alt=duck width=23 height=23>
