I hadn't realised this and can now see why it uses up bandwidth. I disabled it in Firefox addons as another correspondent in this forum had noticed and reported the extra use.  Well spotted.

I turned it off, too.  Got fed up of little windows popping up when I moved the mouse near the scanner logo.... It also reported some "dodgy" sites that I have visited previously without any malfunction/malaware problems....(nice sites,    Cheesy  not "naughty sites"  Shocked )
I make a habit of running CCleaner at then end of every session, so if anything "untoward" had got in, then it would not be reporting back next time I booted up.
