I personally wouldn't touch privacy programs Its easy enough to do it yourself and who knows what they decide to do with the Data - or install while you're installing it.

yes well i agree if u r a expert user but for a newbie it is easier to use a program, as with the data thing it is a risk you take with every program u install, but that is y we have firewalls in place so nobody can mess with our data

Lol - I don't believe in Firewalls, or Virus Checkers.

And especially not Download Accelerators or Computer Accelerators or any kind of freeware software which claims to help you personally at no charge.

Yeh although personally I prefer Mcafee. Norton can't get rid of viruses that implant themselves into explorer.exe

You are screwed if that happens and you have Norton. Lol
