I know nothing about this stuff, but might be an idea to post this on the Official FunCom forums too...

I just looked it up, and although I am not a member of their forums, this is the best I could find.

I've found Mishbuddy to be far superior to Clicksaver, due to all the extra cool bits you get.

I've also been using it since I started AO, and have never come across a virus of any kind in it.

I've found ClickSaver to be far superior to MishBuddy, due to the simplicity of the program.

I've tried Mishbuddy and all it did was crash AO.

In my humble opinion I can honestly say that ClickSaver is the best mission rolling tool for AO.

The posts above yours are 4 years old, so a lot has likely changed with the info/opinions provided.
