    Is this suppose to auto update? Not that it really matters since it appears not to affect me. I don't use IE 6 or 7.

    How does it work? When you launch it, nothing seems to happen, except for the fact that you get to see a DOS window for less than a second.
    Seems a bit fishy to me. :doubt:

    Its a Browser Helper Object (BHO). Works similar to Ad Block Plus in Firefox (in fact, I believe ABP is it's inspiration.) When running, it shows an icon down on the Status Bar.

    Definitely blocks ads. The Yahoo homepage clearly shows it works...
