any one heard of the above.the reason i ask is i just got a phone call from my daughter saying when she went on her pc this install programe was on her desk top her hubby must have downloaded it (not installed yet)he,s not around to ask why.to explain a bit further my daughter knows very very little about pc only been on the net a week but her hubby knows zero about them and she,s concerned that he,s dowloading things willy nilly.i have allready installed adaware spyblaster and spybot on her pc.

Delete it from the system.Much better and more reliable programmes free elsewhere.

not very highly rated either.

From those reviews, it would appear it was probably an Ad that says "Your system is at risk, download me !"

Not sure if its spyware itself or not, but it certainly appears that it needs to be paid for and Ad-aware and Spybot are both free and do a very good job.
