    "scanning time Soooooooooooo long"

    September 12, 2008  |   By lplayter


    It does have a nice U.I,has been around a fair amount of time now and above all has never done harm!I feel I can trust these guys implicitly,My own experiance of it and others I know is It is run by good people who will most likely be still around wh


    It,s full systymn scan in My experiance is far too slow(123 minuates in My case! I find it unnescesary as cCleaner and the free version of spyware doctor carry out all the same functions and do not hog a lot of time or resources.
