F 9 Software Installer

I just upgraded to F9 and the software installer in Applications/System Tools, I have 2 questions:

1. What does this program do>

2. When I try to open I get the following msg:

Could not lauch menu item. failed to execute Child Process "/usr/bin/getproxy" (no such file or directory)

How do I resolve this?
