IE 7 Add-ons
In the IE Tools Add-on page, I have a number of add-ons where the publisher
name is blank or not verified.

Questions: Is this a security risk? If I delete the add-on, what is the
impact? I assume once I return to the site, I will be prompted to re-add the
add-on

Thanks. George

Leonard - There are various:
1. Adobe PD reader help
2. Diagnose connect problems - publisher is blank
3. DLM control by Akamail technologies
4. Citrix systems iCA client
5. Real networks ierpctl class
6. Research - publisher is blank

Some I think probably are valid, but I am still curious why they are not
validated.
