On my pc - Radialpoint spd appears under Extensions and is not enabled - there is a note when you click permissions which says ---- It can access all data on your PC and Websites that you visit. I dont know if it hasnt been enabled by my ISP who leave that decision for me --- Which isnt a difficult one if it can access your details etc
