What is Support Soft Container


Border View

Likes # 0

I run with Windows 7; I use Avast Anti-virus and Windows firewall. I am with o2 and use their wireless router. I have Spywareblaster, C.Cleaner and Superantispyware installed.

Every now and again when I click on certain sites I get the message that Internet Explorer has blocked this site because Support Soft Contaner /Support Soft Inc is trying to open. Nine times out of ten the connection is blocked.

Can anyone please tell me what this Support Soft Contaner and Support Soft Inc is and does it pose a danger.

Thank you in advance.

What does O2 need to update? I very much doubt that your connection would be affected by removing whatever it is that O2 needs to update. Are you with O2 for your mobile phone as this update would possibly be connected with connection software?

Hello Chronus,

I think the My o2 has something to do with any connection problems, not that I ever have any (touch wood), and their online assistance to put them right.

Yes I am with o2 for my mobile, but never connect it to my computer. I don't even go on the internet with it.

I shall uninstall this My o2 and see what happens. Thank you for responding.

Update: I uninstalled the My o2 Update program yesterday and since then (fingers crossed) I have not had the warning referred to.

Can only assume that thats what it was.

Will now give a green tick.

Thank you all for responding and advice given.
