Hello MisfitDevil99 =)

PCWorld recommends it, so it cannot be harmful to ur system :) >> http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_description/0,fid,7538,00.asp

and abt useful, well it depends on ur needs, if u want to know abt the latest security updates and their details automatically, then its useful for u, otherwise for a person like me, who wants to control everything manually, its just a waste of hard space ;-)

!! GOOD LUCK !!
