What is Gator?
Gator enables you to download and use software applications for free. Gator software also helps you to fill out forms and remember passwords. GAIN (Gator Advertising Information Network) in return for their free services will show you permission based targeted advertising. Targeted advertisements are sent to you based on your historical web surfing habits or whatever site you're currently visiting. Gator software runs while ever its icon is present in the system tray, sending and receiving information from its home server and displaying advertisements. If you wish to stop receiving advertising, then you can either upgrade to the paid software where offered or remove GAIN-supported applications in accordance with the manufacturers license.
Before you remove Gator, you may like to transfer your Gator data to RoboForm, a perfect alternative to Gator. RoboForm is a free password manager and one-click web form filler, but unlike Gator it will not send you ads.
