Two days ago, a few hours after I had checked my computer for adware/spyware, I installed Earthstation 5.
Today I ran Spybot and Ad-aware (latest versions, updated) again, and the latter found two tracking cookies.
I deleted them, and when I rebooted my computer Windows didn't start.
Instead I got a DOS window error (with some DLL error about Earthstation), and Windows Explorer shut down.
I then rebooted in safe mode, deleted everything Earthstation, rebooted again, and everything worked perfectly again.
Now I know I could have got those tracking cookies somewhere else, but I think this is a strange coincidence.
Did anyone else have adware/spyware from ES5 or heard from others about it?
