    Not trustworthy. It can invade your computer whenever it wants to.
    My Seamonkey has been set (and I even double checked 4 times this week) that it is NEVER EVER NEVER to update the program. I will choose when to update.
    So, when I went to update, the invaders had already, not only downloaded the update but installed it WITHOUT my permission.
    Any program that does that is not to be trusted.
