That's amazing. It didn't install anything like that on the machines I installed it on. It has been a while since I used it. I will have a look at it.

I apologise if it caused you problems.

Hmmm...the only thing I can find up to now is that they now use "Open-Candy". But I will keep looking.

Still can't find any problems. I will install it and see what happens.

No problem really Mike, it happens - I mentioned it as a warning - Sweetim is not viral, thankfully, just nearly so - a PITA CNET is usually reliable, and I did want to try connectify.

It does not install that toolbar on my machine! There are also plenty of other people using it, even some here it seems;

Connectify

I am sure that if they had problems with toolbars etc they would have said so?

Despite an extensive search, I can't find any mention of various toolbars in Connectify, the only references I can find are to "open-candy".

I have no idea what happened there.

My apologies for any problems it caused.
