    "This is very risky software, they won't refund my money"

    September 20, 2005  |   By misjjd2


    Ease of use


    This software does not work. It crashed my 2nd drive and I had to reformat the drive.

    It does not always work. On Auto Restart it behaves randomly, somtimes it works and sometimes it does not. I purchased the software and I tried to get my money back. They told me give us a month, I did and send them another email, they dont respond.

    My recommendation is DO NOT BUY THIS. Software is bad and people who are responsible are not honest.

    Pros: Ease of use. Everything works and runs like it expected, until.......

    Cons: Installed the software for numberous days, one day the computer become **********. It started with blank screen and no BIOS or display. Similar cases to other reviews here. Luckily, I am a computer tech. and was able fix this problem: Simply remove power cords, the RAM, and CMOS battery, reinsert them. IMHO, DO NOT install or buy this software.
