    Default Spyware not blocked...

    I don't if this new, or considered as spyware, but it was certainly installed without a users knowledge or without UT blocking it.

    However UT does block the site, the below appears in the spyware blocker list:
    dynamic.smartshopper.com
    /Dynamic/Disp/5.0/SiteDisp.dll?GetSDF&Dom=nokia%
    dynamic.smartshopper.com
    /Dynamic/Disp/5.0/SiteDisp.dll?GetSDF&Dom=google%

    Thinking about it I'm not sure if they appeared there after Samrtshopper got installed...

    Any ideas how it got through, or how is best to prevent it?

    Edit:
    Smartshopper first starts appearing in the list while the user was reading their AOL mail, so I presume the above enteries were after it installed as both these appear first:
    cfg.SmartShopper.com
    reports.SmartShopper.com
