    Question javacool. I used Opera 6.05 and K-Melion and use IE only in extreme emergencies. Would Browser Hijack Blaster benefit me? Is it necessary?

    Hi Gnostic,

    You would be installing it for the extreme emergencies, because Browser Hijack Blaster only protects IE.
    You can read the specifics here

    Thanks for clarifying that for me Pieter. I guess it wouldn't hurt to d/l it for those extreme emergencies :D

    If IE is on your computer at all, and it's a family computer (multiple users), it's a safe bet that someone's going to use IE to go who-knows-where and do who-knows-what.

    That alone is reason enough to have BHB on that computer, IMO.

    No argument from me there, Ghost ;)
    The program doesn't eat up anything if you're not using it, but will protect you in case IE is used.
