Wow,

I really can't believe you got back to me. I had bought and paid for 2 other Malware programs in the last 5 days, X********E & P*********c Anti-Spyware, and sent them the same message. I paid for yours and got 2 others from friends that where cracked copies N****n & S*******r but no one has got back to me. I have not heard a peep out of them but You have got back to me.

Well done.

Your faithfully ( a customer forever)

  • Dramatically slowing down your computer.
  • Gaining total control of your PC to spread viruses and trojans and send out spam.
