"Works well, but installs as resident startup."
The interface is much improved from the last time I downloaded it. It ran well and gave me a nice report with clear options regarding issues it found.
Automatically installs resident startup program.
It did what I needed, but I had to uninstall it afterwards because of the crap it assumed I wanted to load every time I start my computer from now on. It automatically installed itself as a resident startup program, which I did not want. It also wanted to install a toolbar, but asked me first. I feel strongly that these types of utility programs should not make assumptions regarding what I want to have running in memory, and slowing down my computer. DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY LOAD CRAP ON MY COMPUTER!!! Can I make it any clearer?
