    "Didn't work for me"

    August 5, 2010  |   By grethy

    Pros

    The concept is good.

    Cons

    I simply could not get this to work after the first day. The first day, it worked. After that it would simply not, even after showing that my computer was connected to the server.

    Summary

    Make it work and I'll love to use it.

    I am having the same malware issues! It search-jacks Google, sending me to some ad-heavy useless search engines. Not to mention the big banner on every web page post-uninstall. Any advice for cleaning my Mac, glore2jc?
