I ran the free version on my system that I knew had something on it, nothing would detect what was going on but your program did! I instantly bought it and now it's clean!

Awesome job! I'm an instant life-long customer.

  • Disrupting the normal functioning of the operating system or rendering it completely useless.
  • Hijacking valuable private information (credit card numbers, passwords, PIN codes, etc.)
  • Directing all your Web searches to the same unwanted or malicious sites.
  • Dramatically slowing down your computer.
  • Gaining total control of your PC to spread viruses and trojans and send out spam.

Deleting Locked Files^
