Hi,

I'm very happy with your performance. I'll be a customer for life. Winctrl32.dll has gone. I have 4 other Bought and Paid for Malware programs that I have but none are as good as yours and none have the same individual response times as good as yours. Some do not respond to help At All.

Great job!

  • 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.
