Does anyone know the answer to this. SpywareGuard and Spybot S&D both create BHO's when you install them; does Giant AS like to create a BHO as well? The reason I ask, is that I had my IE 'Advanced' tab configuration set not to accept third-party extensions at the time I installed Giant and I have noticed that the auto-update feature is not functioning. I wondered if there was a connection and I can't be bothered to do a re-install just to find out! Giant is a good program, but it has more bugs than a termite mound!!!
