    "Saved my bacon and it doesn't install junk - see pros"

    June 12, 2014  |   By bozohead

    Version: Junkware Removal Tool 6.1.4


    Removed a nasty virus/rat program and fixed most everything I needed fixing in a short amount of time. I am very happy with the results. This product does not install any junkware that I am aware of. No adware, spam, etc. - Download.com/Cnet DOES! Scroll all the way to the top of this page (or hit the "HOME" key on your keyboard) and read where it says "Junkware Removal Tool." Underneath that it should say "Download Now." Right under that it says "INSTALLER ENABLED" with a little "i" in a circle. When you click on this green rectangle link ,it downloads Cnet's/Download.com's very own installer program. It is this installer program that probably adds all the spam, adware, etc. If you don't want all that, look under the green rectangle and you will see "Direct Download Link." Click on this to download your program (as I did) and you shouldn't get any spam, adware, etc.


    none that I have seen, but others have found that it did erase things they wanted to keep, but this program does back-up your registry before it does anything. You should back-up your programs, registry, etc. before running a program like this. Don't want to sound superior then you, just trying to suggest a tip.


    This program got rid of a nasty little malware/rat program that was causing all sorts of trouble. My antivirus had been switched off and I couldn't switch it back on even though I had re-installed it. None of the other antivirus programs I downloaded would work properly either. I couldn't any sound at all. My games didn't work right or crashed half way through them (but only when I was winning - lol). None of my videos would play properly. As well, my computer was twice as slow as before and I couldn't download any windows updates. I tried all sorts of antivirus programs, but they all crashed or wouldn't start properly. Finally, I ran this one. It took 30 minutes to finish, but it fixed all my problems and the computer is working very well now. Also, this program doesn't appear to download spamware, adware, etc. - read # 3 Pros section above to find out where it does this come from.
