I had this exact UA. I'm trying to decide if I want to block it off my webpages...

I think you can change the UA in the IEAK (internet explorer administration kit...) I think anyway... I think that's how theses third parties are adding custom UA's.

What do you think? Block it?

It is responsible for 833 hits to a webpage.

I'm wondering if it's a spider.

I know it's a bit of an old thread, but since there's no answer to this....

it seems that Microcomputers Etc is a bot that tries to post to guestbooks and probably harvest email addresses too
(just do a search for the ip in google (in double quotes), and you'll see a lot of guestbook related things pop up)

another ip is

So better block this one =)
