There is a system backup and recovery tool floating around the forums called Quickstart, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
QUICKSTART IS CLOSED SOURCE, SO IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO KNOW WHAT IT IS REALLY DOING!
The author will not answer questions about how Quickstart works or why it depends on the installation of certain files!
Quickstart requires the installation of specific mail transfer and mail user agents which should enable it to send information from your computer without permission and without knowing the content of it's transmissions. Additionally, failure to have these installed prevents the program from working.
Inquiring about the function of Quickstart results in being flamed for not trusting a stranger on the internet!
QUICKSTART MAY OR MAY NOT be malicious, but the author will not provide information that allows for trust assessment.
Avoid Quickstart to protect your computer from the potential danger which is hidden from the user.
