Lycos is a crappy search engine and the owner of services such as Ticketmaster, Angelfire and Tripod. Lycos is a supporter of spyware wheather they want to admit it or not. They use an excessive amount of popups and they are the creaters of the popular hard as hell to remove adware program "Lycos Sidesearch" Ticketmaster.com will hijack your computer and install lots of adware if you don't take the proper security precautions.
Aw! I got Sidesearch again! DAMN THAT LYCOS!
