My school requires this to get onto the WPA2 network here. Does anybody have experience with it? I installed it a few months ago, and soon after my MacBook Pro slowed to a crawl, getting the beachball even opening a website, etc. I had to reinstall SL and didn't reinstall thinking that this was the issue. However I'm not 100% sure. Should I install the app again? Or is it pretty sketchy? There isn't much hard information out there about it.

Clone your drive to an external drive and install this agent there, if you have an issue, don't install the app on your internal HDD.

I did as you suggested sean, and indeed, after exactly a week, I was getting beachballs, crashes, and all that. If your university requires you to have this software, forget about it. It's a piece of crap.
