Because Virus Support said so, that's why

Normally, installation of software by mere wage slaves at the Evil Banking Neighbor is absolutely verboten and can get you canned, but I was directed to download Spybot or AdAware by the folks at Virus Support because some a*****e script kiddy out there is spreading around the malware using my e-mail address, and our whitehats wanted to make sure there was no tracking 'wares or other crap lurking in the Evo. So I got Spybot, found a bunch of cookies and trackers and some weird registry-warping thing, all of which were promptly excised and nuked.

While I was at it, I also downloaded a popup blocker, which should make covert surfing here a lot easier to keep under wraps.
