    "popup kills it"

    April 25, 2009  |   By Ilgaz


    seems to be light on resources and rootkit detection seems impressive


    popup window. it is horrible, I don`t think there is even a spyware doing that kind of behavior today. totally rude and sadly people uninstall it right away after it
