    Well a QUICK GOOGLE SEARCH (for "What is reveals this, then another quick google for the name of the company revealed in the first post comes up with this, as manufactured by the company that first link found.

    So is it harmful? I guess that depends what you're doing on your computer. I guess it might be harmful, but it might not. Perhaps you'll need to do some research (googling is research now? wow...) and come to your own conclusions.

    Well, google was my first resort before starting this thread. As far i as i understood, it is a spyware/malware scanning program. useless is what most people said and it actually is a threat more than a useful program.

    To check if there are any abnormalities in your net connection in regards to this program,
    go to cmd> netstats -an

    if you only have one ip..you are safe..but if you have more than one..then there are trojans/viruses monitoring your pc.
    this is what i learnt from google atleast.
    PS:i have like atleast 15 ips...donno what most of them are.

    it works with the generic microsoft ones, so you can uninstall it. You might get latency problems that way, but you might not.
