Plusnet assist Query

Hello; I've looked through some of the forum to see if anyone has problems with Plusnet Assist, before I try it.  It seems to be causing some problems for some.  I was wondering if anyone knows whether it's just a new way of collecting information and tracking you wherever you go on the internet.  I don't like such things - too many busybodies around these days - perhaps I'm just getting old...
Can anyone tell me any good reasons to try it?  Many thanks. Jackie.

Re: Plusnet assist Query

plusnet assist will help you stay online if you only use basic setups for e-mail etc.  I had customised my e-mail having a domain and e-mail addresses from before I joined and assist screwed it up. I also had problems with Assist telling me I had problems with the web when I hadn't. so I have disabled it.
there are other threads which explain where there are things running in the background but I think the concern there was that they were resource hungry amd may slow your machine down.
i believe that assist is the same programme BT supply rebranded  Smiley

Thank you Peter.  I will put Plusnet Assist on hold for a while longer.
