Testimonials

Hi!
I just wanted to thank you. My computer was frozen last night thanks to an online Easter card that was sent to me via the funcards site. I couldn't do anything but open windows.
I tried to open the exterminate it program that I purchased last year but the funcards site was blocking it, too!
I decided to purchase a new year of service (knowing my current one is going to expire sometime this month). It took two hours of searching, but exterminate it fixed my computer last night.
I have no idea how you all do it, but I would be lost without your service.
Thank you!!!

Valerie

Downloading and Installing Freeware or Shareware

Small-charge or free software applications may come bundled with spyware, adware, or programs like MicroV3. Sometimes adware is attached to free software to enable the developers to cover the overhead involved in created the software. Spyware frequently piggybacks on free software into your computer to damage it and steal valuable private information.
