My download program DAP free has just come up with a download for ct.exe which I didn't request. What does it do and should I download it? I'm using Windows XP Pro.

"ct.exe is a file is for the HP Learning Adventure software and if you use this software it is required to run it "

this is a quoted excerpt from www.iamnotageek.com

I would recommend that you remove DAP and choose a safer alternative. Although DAP itself is not technically malware it may allow it or orther unwanted programs into your system. DAP downloads ads to be displayed in your program window, your Internet Explorer toolbar, and through pop-up type advertising.
