Well, It depends on the site you are going to run it on ;)

Run it on trusted site that you trust

Could you use correct grammar? That would really make it easier to understand what your saying.

window's XP2000

There is no such thing as xp2000. Are you referring to the release date or windows xp and 2000?

PC spyware protected by windows essentials.

The first part I don't understand. Are you referring to a rogue or your pc being protected? Also the correct term is Microsoft Security Essentials. There are rogues out there with similar names to Windows Essentials. Experts may think you are infected.

Again please use clear language when requesting help.

I have not one clue of what his does other than help the site work better with you system, If I should select it and take the chance as a risk because it seems like a reputable site, does this active x stay in my computer or goes away when I perform a disk clean up of my temporary files? Bow or Thanks
