The Gator eWallet program any one use it?

I have used this in the past and I love it for the reason that I have a lot of my passwords saved in this program already. Now I haven't figured it out yet if it is this program (Gator) or iMesh which I just recently installed. that is giving me more pop up windows and putting things on my desktop, than I have ever had before.

Does any one know if there is some way to hack or just plain turn off (in Gator) the pop up windows that happen?

I will never allow any Gator software near my computer or any computer I have control over.

This is probably all the reason that I will stop using it.

Is there another method to be able to use when going to site to remember all the pass words that you might have? And say that you might have to re-install windows can you save that data?

I think writing them down since I do have a few would be better than trying to remember them.

Yeah. Doesn't make much sense to put the keys right by the locks to me. My computer could get hacked, my passwords on paper won't be. My house may get robbed and my computer stolen, my papers probably won't be.

Ok that makes sense, so you don't use the or ever have used the feature in Windows that lets you save your passwords?

Me neither. And when I visit friends and they have that feature (IE saving password) on, I turn it off for them.

I always use it.

Anyways, most sites where security is really an issue, like my bank and credit card, won't let me store the password. I really couldn't care less if somebody that stole my computer was able to post on DVDTalk in my name.

Same here. Why bother password protecting if you're going to do this. This is even worse than the gator thing, it is leaving the keys in the lock of the door.
