viewpoint bar

By TABComputers2002 ·
I'm running XP sp2, and just installed M$ anti-spyware beta. I noticed last nite that I had this "VIEWPOINT BAR" on my system. I ran Ad-aware, Spybot and the anti-spyware, but it doesn't show as spyware.

Is this something that is used with the anti-spyware from M$?? I haven't looked to see if it was in the Add/Remove. I have the google bar, and don't really another bar.

Viewpoint is a type of toolbar like google. It is in the add/remove programs. I believe it is linked with aol instant messanger. I have it on my workers PC's. I removed it and they didn't notice. So you may want to remove it. It logs your keystrokes so could be a serious security threat from a company you don't know.
