NPOV:Alabama Cooperative Extension System, written almost entirely by a news and public affairs employee at ACES, so needs some neutral eyes to give it a going-over to check for both neutrality, and layout/content inclusion, etc.

I was working with my grandmother's computer one time (I believe it was in summer of 2007), and I decided to run a spyware scan with Spybot - Search and Destroy. She asks me to do this quite often, since her computer-literate days were back in the time of punch cards.
What I found is that each of the eAcceleration (StopSign, whatever the name of their product is) files and folders is flagged by Spybot S&D as dangerous. The output did not say whether it was spyware, adware (which isn't usually harmful), or another form of malware, unfortunately.
I went to the Add/Remove Programs panel in the Windows XP Control Panel to uninstall it, but eAcceleration was not listed. I opened up Windows Explorer to go to the program folder and open the uninstall manually.
Guess what? There was no uninstall program.
I made the threat exit (using its own exit command), then used Spybot S&D to remove the files. One of the DLLs was in use and could not be removed. I can't remember if I have ever managed to get rid of it or not. (This is why I hate the NT line of Windows products, there isn't a DOS mode for when the GUI won't work.)
I did not take any screenshots at the time, nor do I wish to install it on a dummy computer just to take one. I feel that people should be made aware of the lack of an uninstall program, but as of now I have not found a trustworthy website that mentions this to cite as a reference.
Include without finding a website to reference, wait until one can be found, or do not include at all?
