    "Crooked and destructive"

    September 20, 2011  |   By kuncne


    Contains Smart Defrag


    Unwanted parasite suite; has messed up my cold boots


    I did not want this software but it forced its way into the Download process when I believed I was acquiring SmartDefrag2. SD2 (2.1, really) seems excellent, but declines to upgrade to the current 2.2.

    The unwanted Advanced System Care seems to do only one thing, and that's to try to get me to abandon Google Chrome, sending me a nag screen about this each time I boot up. Were I more knowledgeable, I could perhaps rid myself of this persistent nuisance but there you are, I just can't do it.

    Attempts to upgrade SD do not work. Instead, each time I tried, another copy of Advanced System Care tried to force its way onto my hard disk.

    Gardeners will recognize that this is how weeds behave. Like them in YOUR garden?

    My experience suggests it has the charm and value of a virus.
