Not-a-virus:Adware.Gator.4104 is also a piece of spyware that violates user privacy.  It monitors the keywords you enter into search boxes and reports them back to its home server, which will then use the information to deliver annoying advertisements.

Not-a-virus:Adware.Gator.4104 may download other software by the same company.  Not only is this program a clear violation of privacy, but its presence may indicate that more adware or spyware is on the host computer.  A free scan with ZookaWare PC Cleaner will alert Web-savvy users of any other threats to their privacy.
