Company appears to have evolved from the old "paid-to-surf" program Epipo.

Comes along with some "advertiser supported" programs, a tactic known as bundling.

Depending on the program (180 Solutions markets several) it may pop-up ads or in the case of the Zango application it may pop-up other websites based on keywords you use while surfing or searching. It is important to note that 180 Solutions derives financial benefit by popping up these 3rd party websites.

Does'nt matter if the site is 'legit'..popular or what, is going to happen..
Just like people fall back on google..easy, popular etc..Its can happen
There are people out there who want to **** with your computer, spyware, virus, Trojan..all the nasties, its a risk you take having the internet.

And i agree with Mr. F, that is trouble, ive came across that and others, and was hella anoying,
Few just to name,
Music site(s) that is poplular, got a trojan,
Zango, got a heap of trouble from,
Zip folders/files from sites,
And a 'Sherif' site i cant remeber but thats the company or something, Sherif something or rather..
