Piattaforma: Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows NT, Windows XP Dimensione: 1,9 Mb
Licenza: Freeware

Caratteristiche: BHODemon è un programma per l'eliminazione di componenti indesiderati, spesso installati in Internet Explorer ad insaputa dell'utente.

In particolare, il software consente di liberarsi dei cosiddetti oggetti BHO (Browser Helper Objects): le applicazioni che ne fanno uso possono interfacciarsi con Internet Explorer controllandone il comportamento ed aggiungendo nuove funzionalità. Tali oggetti (poiché non richiedono alcuna autorizzazione per essere installati) sono spesso impiegati da applicazioni maligne per raccogliere informazioni sulle vostre abitudini e per rubare dati che vi riguardano.

Ciascun oggetto BHO rilevato, può essere disattivato/attivato cliccando sulla casella visualizzata nella colonna Enabled.

n corrispondenza di Status, invece, BHODemon riporta se l'oggetto è benigno, maligno, al momento sotto investigazione da parte degli sviluppatori del programma oppure sconosciuto. Il pulsante Send BHO reports consente di trasmettere agli autore di BHODemon, se lo si desidera, la lista dei BHO presenti sul proprio personal computer. In questo modo il database di BHODemon verrà costantemente aggiornato con nuove informazioni. Facendo doppio clic su ciascun elemento visualizzato in lista, è possibile ottenere i suoi dettagli completi.

HODemon si integra perfettamente con Windows Service Pack 2e 3

Features

Think of BHODemon as a guardian for your Internet browser: it protects you from unknown Browser Helper Objects (BHOs), by letting you enable/disable them individually. BHODemon is free, runs in the tray area, and works on Windows 95 or later operating systems. What is a Browser Helper Object?
A Browser Helper Object, or BHO, is just a small program that runs automatically every time you start your Internet browser. Usually, a BHO is installed on your system by another software program. For example, Go!Zilla, the downloading utility, installs a BHO created by Radiate (formerly Aureate Media); this BHO tracks which advertisements you see as you surf the Web. The natural question is, what do BHOs do? The technical answer is anything, but generally, it will have something to do with helping you browse the Internet. Of course, some BHOs are what is called ad-ware or spyware: they do things like monitor the websites you visit and report this data back to their creators.

Although many people are extremely concerned about them because of the privacy issue, BHOs are not necessarily bad things, and most of them are well-intentioned and beneficial. For example, the P3P (Platform for Privacy Preferences) program spearheaded by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) and major vendors, including Microsoft, AT&T, and IBM, will be delivered as a BHO. Some BHOs, however, are placed secretly on your system, and there is certainly no technical reason why they could not be programmed to send information about your system (or your web surfing habits) over the Internet without your knowledge. Also, there is no restriction on what a BHO can do your system; it can do anything any other program can do: read or write (or delete) anything on your system.

Usually, software is installed on your system explicitly by you; when you do so, you are, in effect, saying that you trust the vendor. BHOs, however, have a history of being installed without the users knowledge (fine print notwithstanding) Given that (a) BHOs can do absolutely anything to your system, and (b) they are often installed without your knowledge, there is a distinct potential for abuse by vendors. The problem is, until now you had no way of knowing which BHOs are on your machine, who put them there, and what they do. This is what BHODemon does - it lets you easily manage your BHOs, and tells you what each BHO on your system is doing.
