    "I've got the Logfile who do I send file to & how?"

    May 10, 2012   |   By robinjoye

    Version: Trend Micro HijackThis 2.0.4 beta

    Pros

    Sounds great if only I can find out how to use it.

    Cons

    No cons as yet.

    Summary

    This is not really a review, I'll write one later:- I am completely computer illiterate. Have given five stars as it would not be fair to give any less until I can find out how to use it.

    "Best admin tool if you know what you are up to"

    March 24, 2012   |   By okdone

    Version: Trend Micro HijackThis 2.0.4 beta

    Pros

    Best admin freeware tool. Lets you know what's going on in your system. Detects it all. Just you must know what you're doing when you're using it.

    Cons

    Not much from admin point of view. But if it is for end users, it can have more organized display and more security, warnings and easy restore facility when you're applying changes.

    "WARNING! PC crashed ... Malware Alert!"

    March 09, 2012   |   By sgjobseeker

    Version: Trend Micro HijackThis 2.0.4 beta

    Pros

    Nothing nice to say about this! This malware caused my PC to crash and unable to boot up.

    Cons

    This software (malware - IMO) caused by computer to CRASH right after installing it! Worse thing is, it does NOT even have an UNinstaller! What crap! My computer couldn't even boot up after installing this malware!

    I have been having a lot trouble booting up my PC ever since I installed this malware! Even System Restore couldn't even fix this situation! Talk about malware alright! This product claims to seek out malware, but IMO, itself is malware!

    Summary

    I'm appalled that I found this product through Google!
