Windows 7: Disconnect add on: is it safe?

Disconnect add on: is it safe?

I have this little add on and it seems to be doing a good job. It is called DISCONNECT.
It tracks websites as I navigate the web and keeps potentially unwanted programs out.
With all that tracking that it says it does, I just want to make sure it is desirable to have.
I don't know where I got it and I just want to be sure it is OK.

Thanks.
