    What does it do?
    - It installs adware on your computer. It sends the URLS of the sites you have visited to its controlling servers.
    - It opens lots of large pop ups when the controlling servers give the command to do that.
    - It causes stability problems while using internet explorer.
    - If there are email addresses configured in your outlook express, then they will be sent to Netpal, and Netpal will sell them for junk mail.

  • Why do people have it on their sites?
    Webmasters put it on their sites and developers put it in their applications to earn money. This is the easiest, but the most cruel way to make money of the visitors and people that like their site. We do not want to take a part in this lie, we do not want to waste your time and abuse your computers by installing AdWare or Viruses.
    We say STOP NETPAL!!!

    Why is it such a big deal?
    Netpal pop ups are very annoying. When you go to a site that has it on them, you will have to click "no" 100 times over and over again. It takes away the fun visiting that site. Netpal installs adware on your computer and invades your privacy. We recommend ignoring NetPal sites to make sure your computer stays safe and to help webmasters realize what they've done wrong. It's important for everyone to know the dangers of Netpal, before installing it.
