I agree with wickedfeel. Some competitor to WW is sabotaging the ratings. I call on Betanews to look into the voting IP log to figure out who is doing it. Website Watcher is probably the only reason I still run Windows on my Mac. I use it all day, every day for work and goofing off. Martin updates his program continuously and gives responsive support.

I concur with a large HOSTS file. I would think it would be faster to have your computer connect to 127.0.0.1 rather than trying to connect and process cookies and crap coming from (and in this case, going to) a site like 2o7.net. Like dlux671, my computer hasn't slowed down at all and it's an old Toshiba laptop.

Well, the above says: "it apparently seems this data transfer extends onto all CS3 programs." ...and Adobe makes CS3 programs for Windows, too, so neither camp appears to be immune.

Windows users: Consider using the pretty robust HOSTS file at: http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm
I use it and my subsequent spyware/cookie sweeps using Ad-Aware and Spybot are much cleaner. They've got a pretty big section dedicated to 2o7.net.
Jeez, it’s bad enough that Adobe makes us activate the software but we’re too addicted to switch to any other programs despite all this bullsh*t.
