You'll no doubt have noticed the first signs of a problem right? Well it gets better as this doesn't stop at an e-mail. I decided to check this one out (don't worry folks, you'll never see adverts in any of my programs), and their website isn't much better;

The "Term and Condtions" (ya gotta love it) referred to by the way, are at;

Their plugin instructions are at;

Essentially, they want developers to include a DLL (ynapwin.dll, PrevX analysis) in their application, that displays adverts to the user. I've not checked to see what type of adverts are displayed, but if their website is anything to go by - you can bet it's not going to be good.
