WebSavings, also know as TopMoxie, is a shopping tool that open pop-up windows. It can also uninstall other software components that interfere with WebSavings.

WebSavings is installed from the vendors site or when installing other applications, such as the Morpheus file sharing program. When testing Morpehus 3.4 there was no opt-out; you will get WebSavings whether you want it or not.

From the developer: In downloading and/or installing the Web Savings From Ebates Software, you are legally and with full authority requesting that Ebates do the following on your behalf: 1)pop up brief alerts when you can save money by shopping through Ebates or by using the Web Savings From Ebates Software. 2)direct your traffic to the merchant you wish to purchase from. This may be done a)by presenting a choice in a pop up alert asking whether you wish to save by shopping through Ebates, thereby directing your browser through Ebates in order to ensure you earn a reward, or b)by automatically routing you through Ebates and automatically earning you a cash-back discount with no further action on your part being necessary. 3) disable or uninstall any other product or software tool that might interfere with the operability of Web Savings From Ebates Software or otherwise preempt or render inoperative Web Savings From Ebates Software in a manner that might jeopardize the ability of Ebates to earn you cash back discounts or coupon savings offered by Ebates. In installing Web Savings From Ebates Software, you authorize Ebates to disable, uninstall, or delete any application or software that might, in Ebates' opinion nullify its function and put you at risk of loosing the cash-back savings that Web Savings From Ebates Software is designed to earn you. 4)If you would like to utilize another savings tool, you can simply uninstall Web Savings From Ebates Software before installing a competitive application.

  4. Exit the registry editor.
