hello sir/madam, i would like to help you, please let me know when you are ready.
OK..ready now Jerry.
hi, is it a browser extension (we call it "plugin" )
even if you don't visit this website, it shows in your history because your browser used that plugin
in fact it is one of the tens of plugins conduit made. you can see it here: http://apps.conduit.com/search?q=facebook&lang=en
i think this plugin was installed automatically when you installed an application. (it came together with it)
I'm not sure what that means, does it mean IE used facebook to look at something. I'm not quite up to date on all the computer technology.
no, it is a "helper" that allows you to view your friends' updates and messages in your internet browser. you can read more: http://apps.conduit.com/FB-App-Facebook-app?appid=a09e6985-3574-4fcd-b796-975649aae18b&lang=en
in fact you can delete it. because this kind of plugins generally slows down your internet browser.
if you don't use it, you can delete it. probably it came with an application that you have installed recently.
there are alot of plugins like that. you can see this list: http://apps.conduit.com/?lang=en
facebook app is one of them..
I had never seen that one before, so that plug in would of just been installed?
yes. probably it came with an update. or you have installed a program and it came together with that program. (generally this kind of plugins came with another program; for example itunes, adobe reader etc)
it is not a dangerous program (malware or spyware) .. but if you don't use it, you can delete it.
OK...I downloaded Infranview, that is probably where it came from.
I'll delete it...again thanks, XXXXX XXXXX worried someone was using my computer.
generally "free" programs contain "plug-ins" like that.
no, don't worry, your computer is safe. it is not a dangerous program.
however if you delete it, your browser will be faster.
Thanks for clarifying that for me, I'll check into those plug ins as well so I am more familliar with them as well, I'm sure more will pop up...Thanks Jerry!
you are welcome, best regards. if something goes wrong , i will be here anytime.
