Technical Details

After installing such package, you might find a program called AGENT007.EXE from your Windows directory and see a process called Agent007 in your task list. You might also see a value called "Spy" added to the Run entry of Windows registry, executing the AGENT007.EXE program every time Windows is started.

While running, this program does not appear to do anything. However, it might sometimes generate error messages stating:

Invalid data type for 'Completed'

Although all this appears suspicious, the program does NOT try to spy on the user or do anything else dangerous. This has been confirmed with the officials at Telia. There is no need to be concerned.

The purpose of Agent007 is to collect information about a possible earlier Intenret connection and use that in the registration program to ease the registration process.
