      Whats on the CD?

      Just got my Sky BBand up and running finally but didnt insert the packaged CD as i didnt fancy installing any badware, insted i thought i would ask people who have already installed the guff from the CD what's on it????

      Is it worth putting the CD in or does it just drop a load of rubbish onto your PC?

      Welcome to the site Eddy

      Its good to watch the installation guide that SkyBB have made but apart from that unless you want a SkyBB branded IE6 or a help file or McAfee security software installed your not missing anything.

      Annoyingly, no 'Skip' Option if you only want the Mcafee stuff re-loaded!

      @sao: browse the cd and you will find the mcafee set up

      It re-installs IE6 if you run the cd
