    "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.

    "Great Find On My Computer"

    August 26, 2011   |   By Chicherri

    Version: EgisTec Shredder 2.0.8.1

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Summary

    Great idea, and works well
