I've just connected to Sky Broadband for the first time. After using the Sky set-up CD it left a Sky icon on my desktop. When you double click on it Safari opens. Is there any point to this application?
Also, I downloaded the Virus protection which was on the CD. However, when it tries to do the 'e-update', it fails and says it can't connect. Andy ideas?

Re: Using Safari
I've got the Sky icon on my desktop which links to 'Sky Homepage' - which if you want to go there saves typing in address I suppose, but has home pages go it's 'pants'.
It opens in Firefox for me as I have set that as my default browser rather than Safari.
I have the same issue with Virex - wasn't sure if needed as Mac as built in firewall as well as the router and so far in 5 years of Mac use not be hit by a Mac virus.
But like you, I'm curious as to whether I set it up wrong or it's just a load of rubbish

Re: Using Safari
Hi Stevie, I too got the icon but binned it. No real need for me to have it as I've given up trying to access the SKY portal.
It's never let me in from day one and as I've got a .mac mail account I don't bother with the sky mail side of things either.
It won't do you any harm trashing the icon, likewise I haven't bothered with the McAfee(sp?) software either. As the other reply has also hinted at, I've never had any virus issues bother any of my Macs that I've had.
