NO!  Stop!  Do not do it!

The driver CD provided with the Cue Cat did a lot of nasty things to your
computer and obligated you to honor their software and licensing stuff.  Do
not use it.

The Cue Cat itself is all you need, but you need to make a hardware change
inside the cat.  In its original form, the bar code was encrypted and
combined with a serial number.  The Cue Cat software used this to track your
web surfing habits.  You need to disable the encryption and serial number
stuff so that you only get a plain-text bar code.  There are several
hardware versions with slightly different changes.  Do a Google search on
"Cue Cat" and look around.

I have several and they all work very well.  The original was a keyboard
wedge and a later version was a USB.
