Default Comodo Safe-Surf?

Just downloaded Comodo Firewall. Installation added the Firewall, and a program called Comodo Safe-Surf. Is this an anti-Spyware program? Is it necessary if I run Ad-Aware often?

The Comodo SafeSurf Toolbar protects against data theft, computer crashes and system damage by preventing most types of Buffer Overflow attacks. This type of attack occurs when a malicious program or script deliberately sends more data to a target applications memory buffer than the buffer can handle - which can be exploited to create a back door to the system though which a hacker can gain access. Comodo developed the SafeSurf Toolbar explicitly to protect end-users from these kinds of attacks whilst they browse the Internet. After installation, the program will monitor and protect the memory space of all applications that are running on your system and immediately block any buffer overflow attacks. Apart from providing another essential layer of protection, the toolbar also provides one-click access to news, search, shopping; a built in pop-up blocker; is compatible with all major browsers
No,it's no an anti spyware program,and yes,keep ad-aware running.
