This application report reviews the Jessica Simpson Screensaver application, produced by Team Taylor Made and distributed via www.teamtaylormade.com.
We find that Jessica Simpson Screensaver is badware because it is bundled with Trojan horses, as well as undisclosed
adware, spyware, and a stealth dialer. These bundled applications display pop-up ads, redirect web searches and
access to web merchants, attempt to close anti-spyware software, and install modifications to Internet Explorer.
Also, uninstallation is difficult and ultimately unsuccessful.
We currently recommend that users do not install the version of the Jessica Simpson Screensaver that we tested,
unless the user is comfortable with the level of risk we identify or until the application
is updated consistent with the recommendations in this report.
