Currently Notice: Undefined variable: incprefix in /data/www/xblock/product_show.php on line 123 25,860,543 Spy Software Busted!
Full Name:
Your Screen
Type: Adware
Also Known As: YourScreen freeze.com
Danger Level: 3
Category Description: Program that delivers advertisements on your PC.

Note that many websites have their own advertising, unrelated to adware.

Adware is any software application in which advertising is displayed while the program is running. The authors of these applications include additional code that delivers the ads, which can be viewed through pop-up windows or through a bar that appears on a computer screen and sometimes through text links or in integrated search results. Adware may or may not track personal information. It may also gather information anonymously or in aggregate only. Users should check the EULA and Privacy policy to ensure if the adware on their machines conforms to their standards.
Comment: This is an application provided by Freeze.com, LLC that enables the user the ability to alter their desktop at the price of installing adware applications. Freeze.com, LLc's Privacy Policy (last updated on Feb. 2 2006) states that in order to make their services free, it will be bundled with third party advertisers. It specifically states:

" * Relevant Knowledge, an Internet customer of Knowledge Company and a service of Comscore Networks, Inc. For more information regarding Relevant Knowledge, please visit its web site at http://www.relevantknowledge.com. The Relevant Knowledge Privacy Policy and User License Agreement is available at http://www.relevantknowledge.com/RKPrivacy.aspx.
* Your personal information will be shared with subsidiaries of Freeze, including without limitation, Freeze Media, LLC and Gamepoint, Inc. for purposes of sending you the Email Offers."

The latest bundles of Your Screen do not install Marketscore or any RelevantKnowledge products. Instead it installs New.net, WebHancer, and WhenU SaveNow.
