I am hearing that I didn't have to run the RR Activation CD.

When the technician came out he ran the software for the modem and then told me I could save money by running the activation cd myself, which I did. Now I understand by what I'm hearing is I dont need it. It installed IE6, which has been alright, but it installed a folder called Broadjump(20MB) and a Roadrunner folder(10MB). Under Add\Remmove I have one called "Broadjump Client Foundation" and another called "Broadjump Correct Connect Engine". Can these be removed?

I have ran spybot several times since going to rr and it has not detected these as spyware at all.

Finally found this and it sounds like a lot of companies are using it. I am afraid to uninstall it as I don't have any idea what repercusions it would cause to my connection.

Used to work tech support for RR, we never had Broad Jump then but the DSL provider I have now does. They bypass the BJ install and manually install the software as it is faster and easier then by using Broad Jump. Don't see how uninstalling it could hurt anything.
