    "Excellent program!"

    July 12, 2012  |   By jennery72

    Pros

    This is an awesome utility and it catches and makes neat logs of everything it catches. I have found in working with computer techs that this is what they want you to use to quickly scan your system because it will generate a nice log for them to view. However, that said, techs will also recommend that you NOT continuously run this program WITH another AV program...I have learned this the hard way.

    Cons

    None that I can see, as long as you don't run it alongside another AV program utility.

    Summary

    WORD OF CAUTION: I am looking at backing up all my stuff and re-installing my OS, and I am NOT HAPPY about it. My system isn't even 3 years old. My netbook is so jacked that I can't even log into Windows even in safe mode. I have learned my lesson. ALL YOU NEED IS ONE AND ONLY ONE GOOD ANTIVIRUS (not McAfee -- recommend Avast!) AND THAT IS IT! USING MORE THAN ONE AV PROGRAM AT A TIME CAN HARM YOUR SYSTEM IRREPARABLY! My trusted online computer expert told me that in addition to only needing ONE AV program, he believes strongly that programs that promise to "OPTIMIZE", "CLEAN", or "BOOST" -- CAN ALSO HARM YOUR REGISTRY IRREPARABLY!! Be CAREFUL!
