    "Really, really good, but with one caveat."

    November 6, 2012  |   By tonyny77


    Amazingly simple, fast, and efficient. Works like a charm.


    I'm a little perplexed by this utility requiring approval to run each time you sign into Windows. It requires just a single mouse click to authorize running the program, but it seems there ought to be a way to make the program work without the system asking for approval every time it's started. I adjusted all the settings I know how to control, but none of the changes I made seemed to have an effect. My system still asks for approval each time this program starts.


    I've used this utility for about a week and for the most part, I'm very, very pleased. However, the one issue I have with it is the need to approve running it each time it's started after signing into Windows. Other than that, I would have given EVERYTHING CNet's five-star rating.

    You should be concerned about giving any program like this administrative authority. It simply should not need it. If the program gets hacked or otherwise malfunctions, it could do serious damage to your computer.
