Somehow I doubt if this is what you're talking about:


Zango, formerly 180solutions and Hotbar, manufactures known adware and spyware typically required to access partner's games, DRM-protected videos and software. Zango software is listed as "Adware" by Symantec. McAfee states, "this program may have legitimate uses", but describes it as a "potentially unwanted program", and an "adware downloader".

I was referring to a health drink thing. I'm thinking a multilevel marketing gimmick.

How you doing LCA? Hope your feeling better

Anybody heard of it?

Actually, possum.........just yesterday is the first time I'd heard about this stuff.  Sounds like a high potency antioxident.........extracted from the skin of a fruit that grows in Malaysia, I believe.  A friend and I had lunch yesterday and while we were eating another friend of hers stopped and talked to us and they got to talking about it.  He (my friend's friend) said he'd taken it for a while but it was too expensive to continue.   That's about all I know about it........I can't even recall the name of the fruit they said it came from.  The fellow did say that the natives where it grows use the skin for pig feed........(they must have healthy pigs, huh?)...lol

Sorry I didn't see this before.  Yes, zango is spyware.  It's hard to get rid of ... I think I got rid of it with spybot.

ZANGO Games

Another adware vendor, 180solutions, through its Zango division, creates games like "David vs. Goliath" and "Secret Chamber" that come with adware. Although the Zango sight mentions the targeted ads you will be receiving, most users will never visit the Zango site as the games are available from many free download sites like download.com and tucows where you may or may not see any warning at all.  source => pcpitstop
 

If you should get infected .. go to a reliable site such as pcpitstop and major geeks to get help you can trust.

Well I did try to get him in to help me do the back up but .. we had an emergency at a few sites.  I'll try to push him into this forum as soon as he can manage to find time. 

Maybe we should just scream his name and see if he pops in.
