Layered Service Providers
This tab displays Layered Service Providers (LSPs) installed on your system.
What's An LSP?
An LSP is a piece of software that can be inserted into the chain of data transferring software on your computer. Before data from a web server reaches your web browser, it goes through all the chained software, including all installed LSPs. The same is true for outgoing data. Malicious software can use LSPs to see all traffic being transported over your Internet connection.
The Delete Action
The delete action (depending on the selected options):
- Uninstalls the LSP so that the data transferring chain stays consistent;
- Deletes the LSP file;
- Unregisters the LSP file (DLL module).
You may need to reboot Windows for the action to take effect.
