    Hi Slovak,

    If you have other programs warning you about BHO's being added, browser changes being made, etc. my answer would be: No, you don't need it.

    Personally, I like programs that warn me about changes and let the user decide whether they are wanted or not, as opposed to relying on a database of malware (which is always behind) ;)

    Regards,

    Pieter

    I think I am going to remove it, I have had it for about a year now and never had it warn me of one single thing. Thanks.

    Hi Slovak :)
    I personally think you should keep it. As Pieter says as opposed to relying on a database of malware (which is always behind) Think carefully before you remove it

    Regards

    In that years time....have you attempted to change your Homepage ?

    If so....it should have at least warned you of that.

    Yes, once or twice at least, but I use Firefox, not Microcrap if that makes any difference.
