Is Privoxy malware or legit?

I just saw that Privoxy has been installed on my PC.  What is it?  What does it do that isn't already being done my Symantec Internet Security?
Is it a scam?

Hi,
As far as i know, its a malware. Just get rid of it. If your norton is not doing the job, download Malwarebytes and update it. Then try it.

Hi,

As I told you earlier this is a valid program, but it is up to you whether or not you want it to run on
startup.

Another authentic refrence: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/Privoxy-4203.html
