Lycos is owned by LookSmart, Ltd and publically traded on the OTC under the symbol "Look". The company has become very bad news with significant spyware/adware issues. We have firewall & HOSTS file blocked all of LookSmart's products & related sites for quite some time now in our IT department. If you need more information, I would be happy to post our internal "poop" sheet on this company and all related sites.

Here's our IT "bullet report" on LookSmart, Ltd. You can add and delete from the list based on your personal preferences and product usage.

Hope this was useful...ces
