    I tested the StartSurfing software just over a year ago, when it had been seen to install from drive-by pop-unders (from, AFAICR).

    It installs a web proxy on port 8080 and locks IE's proxy settings to point to it. The proxy does various possibly-useful filtering tasks.

    It also hijacks search/error pages, and, though this didn't happen when I originally played with it, its licence had some nasties in about opening pop-ups and spying on terms on web pages viewed.

    I did not, at the time, catch it doing any affiliate-code stealing.

    Of course any of the above might have changed since then, but the original installation method alone would lead me to be very wary of this company.
