Ask Jeeves denies spyware claims

Following a rash of claims that Ask Jeeves is downloading and installing their toolbar without the consent of the computer user, Ask Jeeves has sent a letter to Danny Sullivan explicitly denying those charges.

The letter further denies that they are identified by Microsoft as spyware. The charges were first brought by anti-spyware advocate Ben Edelman in his article Does Jeeves Ask for Permission? Danny’s original post on the subject is here.
