"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Judging by the Google page with articles about Invincea, it looks like a pretty reputable company..

There is one very favorable article about Invincea Chrome Redirector Extension.  
http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/it-security/invincea-browser-protection-using-the-power-of-virtualization-to-combat-malware/
But it is five years old.

I see no other comments that would allow a definitive decision about Invincea Chrome Redirector Extension's safety.  And a quick look at Invincea's product list does not show  Invincea Chrome Redirector Extension.

Have you run the usual virus and malware scans?

Why are you worried about Invincea?  Did you download it yourself?
