|SAVE!/SAVENOW is installed on your computer as a module that comes with WeatherCast or ClockSync or other software that you downloaded from the Internet. At that time, you accepted a SAVE!/SAVENOW license agreement as part of the download process you completed. Chris Currie|

|It comes as a condition of operating bearshare for free....the trick is that bearshare only requires that it be installed on your computer, you can quarantine, deactivate, etc. as long as the file itself is on your system somewhere. Not a problem once you stop it from doing everything it's supposed to --- then you got bearshare for free. If anybody knows a better psp system let me know. Zen82|
