"Egis Tech software is like buying a virus"

October 01, 2012  |  By Charger_Fan

 |  Version: EgisTec Shredder 2.0.8.1

Pros

Easy to install. Pre-installed on Acers.

Cons

Pre-installed on Acers.

Very, very difficult to uninstall. Breaks Windows backup. Easy to install, does damage to your computer and is then very difficult to remove - sounds like a virus to me. Actually, viruses are easier to remove.

I'll never by another Acer or anything from Egis Tech.

Summary

Why would any legitimate software not be easily uninstalled? Go ahead and buy this SPAM. I warned you.

"Can't uninstall"

February 20, 2012  |  By ElGrillo29090

 |  Version: EgisTec Shredder 2.0.8.1

Pros

I don't need it or want it. It is part of the bloatware that seems to have crept into so many new computers.

Cons

This product came preinstalled on my Acer. I have tried to delete it along with MyWinLocker from my computer and it will not go away. I have tried Programs and Features, Revo Uninstaller, IObit uninstaller,and MicrosoftInstall Cleanup. None work. I had to recover my hard drive after trying to delete all the files then turning off system processes to delete the ones that Windows would not let me delete otherwise. I have searched through dozens of websites, including Microsoft forums for a way to uninstall this program.

Summary

If you don't need it, don't install it.

"Won't uninstall without buying another program"

January 23, 2012  |  By jsonewald

 |  Version: EgisTec Shredder 2.0.8.1

Pros

Seems to be about as good as Eraser, or other free software

Cons

Cannot be uninstalled through Win 7 or other (CCleaner) methods.

Summary

There are better and free programs available.

I came across files that wouldn't delete normally, so somehow I clicked around and found the "Shredder". Got rid of my unwanted files.

Don't have any. Haven't used the new update yet

Summary

Great idea, and works well
