The U.S. House of Representatives voted late Tuesday to restrict some of the
most deceptive forms of spyware. 

By a 399-1 vote, House members approved legislation prohibiting "taking
control" of a computer, surreptitiously modifying a Web browser's home page,
or disabling antivirus software without proper authorization. 


thank you
