I googled it and it seems to be bad news, a spyware program.



Bells and whistles are nice, but nothing will substitute for the basic understanding of the hobby.

You must have a malware virus on your computer that is trying to take advantage of your Xchange2 install and install itself. Get malwarebytes and clean your computer.

From what i have read it is a browser that installs itself with its own proxy settings.
If you uninstall it ,it leaves data in the registry to try and re-install and causes computer slow-downs.
Just what i read,take it as you may, a lot of downloads want to install a browser on your computer so it is nothing out of the ordinary, Even software i have bought
gives the option to install browsers if you want them,such as firefox,Bing,Ebay,etc. etc. but they all have their own Proxy settings!

Gotta love the computer world!

Ok, I downloaded the software (Exchange 2) installed it, did some testing. I can not find the Bucksbee add on as of yet.
But i did get a Browser, i use Google Chrome and it switched me to one called Chromium, no visual difference, but it says it is the Browser of the future.
Loaded some web pages and it is Much faster than Google Chrome was. Hmmmmm also there is a proxy folder in the download that shows the settings used.

I will test it for a bit and see if i have any issues. Can't use it on a unit, i don't have the CTX but i can run some of the software.
