I have for my internet provider. this is a small tool to let you know if you are getting close to you download limit. No danger at all.
I have been using it for years with my Hughes Satellite system. Keeps track on how much bandwidth i use . works great
it is a nightmare. barely worked well when I had satalite and now is virtually impossible to get off an old laptop with an outdated os [thank you ms for no longer helping with the older os programs]I am having to use. I have gone into remove programs and it acts like a virus not letting me remove it and putting boxes up in front of the removal box where I can't finish getting rid of it
