Zango, Fun Web Products, Zune, Hotbar

I searched for threads on this, hope I didn't miss one that addresses my question...

I keep seeing Zango, FunWebProducts, Zune, and Hotbar in the browser info on my trackspace hits. I know that it's stuff on the visitor's machine, but what do these things do? I didn't find one of the zango examples, but here are some of the others:

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; FunWebProducts; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 5.0; .NET CLR 3.5.21022; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30618; Zune 3.0)

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; FunWebProducts; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 5.0; .NET CLR 3.0.04506;Hotbar 10.2.197.0)

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; GTB5; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; Media Center PC 4.0; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.30; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.648; SpamBlockerUtility 10.2.217.0)

Thanks!

These are add-ins that the user has installed. Most of these, like FunWebProducts and HotBar are spyware/adware and often times the user does not even know that they have been installed onto their PC (Mac's, BTW, are immune) .. Others like SpamBLockerUtility claim to be useful programs, but they deliver advertisements (pop up ads) to the user..

I think the Zune 3.0 one is a Internet Explorer plugin for converting files to the Zune's format.

I didn't know funwebproducts was spyware. My "admirer" had this show up on my tracker whenever she visited my page. I kind of feel bad, like I should tell her. Nah, I wont.

yeah, have to admit i find it funny and not surprising that my "admirer" is infected. I'm not telling her by any means. lol.
