the screenshots in the other thread only shows how it looks during the installation,
pointing to the danger of installing Foxit.

Jacee: thanks for the info, it seems to be a lot of BS that it wants to download.
maybe it tries to install ASK-Toolbar, but the toolbar is also offered during the installation.
Very good. I also do not install toolbars.

The only toolbar added on besides a few quick launch bars added onto the main taskbar here is the IE security toolbar that's an option in AVG. That seems to be a good for flagging sites that try placing anything on your system.

From there I put the main portion of AVG on the disabled list in the msconfig and run a different antivirus program found to be far better at finding and removing all sorts of bugs and doesn't intrude on other softwares. Even with the idea that an MS named tool of any type being altered to contain any malware is certiainly something to watch out for.
