Default Zango

Is this thing bad? Rapidshare and Megaupload are making me install it before I can download anything. If you know a way around this please post as I'd rather not have Zango on my computer. I installed it for now. I will uninstall later unless it's harmless. I don't mind it taking up my RAM if it will allow me to access these sites. Please post any other information you feel is important.

I believe it's epic spyware. And pretty tough to remove. Just look on google when you get ready.

It's spyware. It in itself doesn't do much, but it does make it easier for other things to get in. Kinda like weatherbug.

You need to do your own research, before installing any program.

Now to get this off...Spybot S&D and Comodo are on it. If they don't find anything I'm going safemode.

edit: What do you know. Spybot caught it already.

Is there any other way for me to download stuff now? How do I get around the thing for Zango.

Um...neither of those sites should be making you install anything before downloading stuff...

If it comes down to it, use HijackThis.

Here's instructions on how to remove it from PC Hell: http://www.pchell.com/support/zango.shtml

Zango is no match for Spybot S&D in Safe Mode. They keep asking me to install Zango before I download anything..

You might have some other form of ad/spyware on your PC then. Zango usually isn't associated with Rapidshare and Megaupload.

Might wanna try Ad-Aware.
