I have begun to hear a rumor that should not be allowed to become a reality, users of Earthlink chime in and tell us if this is happening to you.....
A user at Lavasoft's website:
Ever since I moved to Earthlink's Total Access 2004 ISP software, I am unable to run Adaware. This is also true for Spybot. Adaware will not even initialize when online. Again, the same is true for Spybot.
I have contacted Earthlink about this matter, but they would only say that they do not support this software since it is third-party and that I should run Earthlink's version of Spyware Blocker. Of course, I disagreed with this.
