    "This Software Stinks"

    December 14, 2012  |   By clarkbgm


    I did not find any pros.


    I uninstalled this software 10 minutes after installing. I have a very fast system; however, this software slowed my computer to a crawl. It also installs the AOL tool bar, and 2 add-ons even though I selected the option not to install. Online slowed to the point it would not even recognize mouse selections nor carry any of them out. My home page was set to AOL even thought I said I didn't want it; I had to disable the 2 add-ons but it didn't offer any speed up. I had a tough time resetting my home page because my system was not responding. I used task manager to close ie because I was unable to get a response to the tools drop down. After running the program; I really didn't know what action to take.


    I will NEVER NEVER NEVER buy or test another product for this company. I was trying to recover a video that I accidently installed but was unable to recover if over a certain size without purchasing. Also, every key stroke made while trying to use the app resulted in a pop-up window telling this was trial software and wanting to have you purchase the full program. If I can't test it, I am sure not going to buy it. BEWARE
