BHO problems

  MIKE 17:52 31 Dec 2004

After downloading various programmes including smilies. I was told by spywareblaster the downloading files had BHO's and would try to alter my IE, I canncelled the download. I suppose my questions are what is or are BHO's and are they dangerous. Do most programmes now have these DHO's

click here no more dangerous than any spyware, just that they track your browsing session.

I would say you mean the smileys for OE and MSN,and BHO's can alter your start page add tool bars and track your surfing habbits,are you using xp sp2? i ask because if you were it would have alerted you and probably not allowed the dload.
