Comet Cursor is spyware. Uninstall it completely asap. I would suggest
downloading Ad-Aware and running it. http://www.lavasoftusa.com/

Stay the hell away from that damn purple ape hellspawn program too. Delete
that shortcut!

Subject: [thelist] uncontrolable download - Comet Cursor

When I connected to my ISP today, I was confronted by a window that I could
not close. It said updating Comet Cursor. When it finished and installed
itself, it had attached itself to IE with another toolbar and a floating
button on the main toolbar.  It irks me that some developers can be so heavy
handed to dump stuff on my desktop without asking.

Later I found a shortcut on my start menu:
With a gorilla like image and a label FREE BonziBuddy.

Whats going on?
