    just curious.. I see a lot of references to it, and I can tell it's used in helping diagnose and fix problems, but what exactly is it? a software program? how do I know if I need it for anything?

    It is a program that scans the registry and Highlights the values that may have been set by Trojans, Advertising, Viruses, and such. It also lists all the programs that are run on start up.

    We ask for it we people describe problems that indicate Spyware or other infections
