|Program to protect your computer against malicious software, spyware. (further information...) |
|I think this is not a good piece of software. You should be able to remove a piece of software from your system easily. For a beginner or imtermediate user removing this programme as it installed itself on my system would be imposible. No programme for removing software could remove it . Eventualy by getting into explorer etc. using a unlocker programme including rebooting a couple of times I managed to get rid of it. I only wanted to get rid of it initally because it seemed to be very resource amd memory hungry. In conclusion I could not recommend anyone to use this software. |
