    Glad you asked this question. I was wondering the same thing 2 days
    ago. My research (= 5 minutes) seems to indicate it will make Internet
    surfing and private information on your PC more secure. I don't know
    anyone, however, who has used it. "Long live newsgroups".

    Thank you - I'm in the dark about this, too. Found it on my Control Panel,
    which irks me no end. It wasn't there the last time I looked, which is not
    long ago!!

    Don't worry about the control panel applet but do *disable* the service. It
    only helps you to login securely over a network.

    It was part of an SP3 update. Totally useless IMO, but only the USER can
    make that decision based on their own needs wants and experience. It also
    conflicts with a past-used file extension from Windows Cardfile back in the
    95/98 era (and which I still use) and steals the file association.

    HTH,
