    "False Sense of Security"

    April 20, 2010  |   By seldomseen68

    Pros

    All pro's are in it's appearance. Looks good, just pay no attention to whats not behind the curtain.

    Cons

    Doesn't really "FIX" anything. Doesn't like you to run other security programs, like Ad-Ware. Runs several files running in the background that hog the CPU.

    Summary

    Really does nothing but offer a false sense of security. It loves to tell you things are fixed, when really it does nothing spectacular.
    Some tools just don't work, and the only solution their tech-support will offer is to either uninstall and reinstall, or go through a series of silly tasks to disable other programs. Doing this also will not help the tools to work.
    Their tech-support seems to through their hands up in the air, and quickly.
    Another major frustration is that it loves to run certain files like mxtask2.exe in the background. They will hog your CPU while you are doing other things. Disabling FIX-IT will not stop these files from running.
    When I attempted to tame these files by lowering their CPU usage, it crashed my computer.
