    PC Pitstop has put together a couple of nice pages in an attempt to inform the general public.
    Do they even know there are PC-related sites?

    Firstly, the Gator information center;
    http://www.pcpitstop.com/gator/default.asp

    When you get through that section, head on over to the Gator Quiz;
    http://www.pcpitstop.com/gator/Quiz.asp

    I don't think Claria approves of these, but hopefully some folks will learn a bit from these.

    no matter what gator says they are and will be a spyware. alright they changed the name but wtf??? will they ever change in the core? thing is that such companies are really putting the pressure and sites like PCPitStop are giving up.
    here is a recent article from Lavasoft - Makers of Ad-aware regarding this pressurising/legal cases.
