    can someone tell me what this option during install really is for??

    i know it simply states other programs but what tyoes of programs does this apply to?? im installing this for my mother and she def does not want to be constantly nagged with pop ups for things like reg cleaners and defrag etc.. what exactly does this other programs include?? any info would be great if anyone here knows. i dont see anywhere in the help section or even really on the kas forum about this topic but i may have missed it. thanks

    Hello zfactor,
    other software is the same as "riskware" in kis7.0
    its software which can be used for other uses such are remote access tools,hacktools etc.

    What lodore said + it also includes detection for a lot of nasty stuff such as keyloggers (commercial), fraudtools/crapware (like IEdefender and other spyware type gems)...so I would definitely have it on. First thing I change on any default install.
