Aug. 6th Three programs to NEVER download!
1. Gator -- This has to be one of the most annoying downloads ever. First of all, the sneaky folks over at Gator have found a number of different ways to get Gator onto your system without you even knowing it. Gator will often creep into the download you want and you will end up with it on your system without having consented to putting it there.
2. Bonzi Buddy -- Now, I like cute little purple monkeys, don't get me wrong, but one on my desktop that pesters me? No thanks. The concept sounds OK at first, but after awhile I wanted to take a shotgun to it.
3. GoHip -- GoHip should be called GoAway! This is basically a browser extension that is useless because, well, it just is. Do you really need a browser extension? No, you don't. The really annoying thing is that this puppy is a pain to get rid of. You have to go to the site just to uninstall. For more on GoHip, read this article.
