    it works like a firewall and keeps out spyware which keeps out virus and unwanted addons...

    Generally speaking, if it's Windows based and it's free, it's crap. Thanks to Mr. William Gates the 3rd, being the money grabbing b'stard that he is. All software for Windows has to be licenced and they have to pay him 'royalties' to use the built in code modules. If they don't he can sue them.
    If they want to write all the modules themselves, then it would take years to even write a small piece of software, and would run very slowly.
    You get what you pay for.....
