It seems more of a "no brainer" patch update warning system for system builders. Emachines etc. to save on service support calls.  Only privacy issues that would concern me would be the third parties they are involved with as the initial agreement on install would be with BigFix and not them..

I agree with Eddy, most of us who are aware of security issues wouldn't need it running in the background.

I can't find anything on the company website about privacy issues, which might fall foul of E.U. business practice for E.U. users, but obviously isn't relevant to other countries.

Though one of their products might make some think twice about the company model
