    "Tricked into downloading Pro while trying to update"

    June 29, 2012  |   By shawnxxx1


    A nice looking package with lots of nice colors and fonts.


    I was tricked into downloading the Pro version while trying to update the free version. I will never by software from a company that sucks you into trying their product. To me that is worse than SPAM. I then spent an hour uninstalling the program, and then after getting 5 blue screen computer crashes, I had to download a Reg Edit program to clean up all the useless drivers that were left behind. I am so done with LavaSoft!


    Do a search for Free Registry cleaner on CNET in order to find a program to clean up your system. And be sure to support the software company with a donation instead of funding what I consider to be more online fraud.
