Technical Details

Mindset Interactive created NetPal. It was the second largest product after Favoriteman and it was promoted with new sites and new names.

It appears however that Mindset Interactive has closed down all their sites and operations.

F-Secure still detects NetPal because it still exists in the wild. Even though the components are no longer harmful, they add additional load to your browser.

Mindset Interactive also created Favoriteman. Read more of& the description of Favoriteman here:
