I recently installed the FTP Client. After this I had an application called "super optimizer" installed and running without my authorization or having installed this application knowingly myself. I can only surmise that it came with the Filezilla installation. It blocked access to my desktop by displaying a dark grey window which could not be closed.
Removing the Super Optimizer was difficult because it infiltrated a lot in the Registry. I like to install the FTP Server as well but hesitate to do so with the above experience.
Are you aware of this Super Optimizer possibly being installed with FileZilla free downloads?
