    "A cleaner that does some unwanted things as well."

    September 19, 2011  |   By dorcom

    Pros

    Seems to do what you can set to do.

    Cons

    Spyware/Trojan infected!!!
    1st. download is blocked due to "Potentially Unwanted Application" variant W32 InsrtallCore C.
    2nd. If you want to install be aware that the "express" feature will change your default home page, search and what have you!

    Summary

    Be careful! You can't trust CNET any longer!

    So very true. I have Avast! Pro Anti-Virus/Spyware and it seems that many of the freeware products I have tested from CNET seem to have problems that should have been announced. CNET is getting paid to deliver and that is all they are doing, much to the disservice of their readers. They are following the bucks and leading the reader to the trough, poison or not.

    Agreed. Don't call something Spyware when you don't understand what either of those things are.

    Hi,

    Please do not blindly call something spyware/trojan that you do not understand. This software *optionally* installs a toolbar, which is somewhat helpful and in no way malicious. This toolbar supports the developer so that they can continue to provide *free* software. There is also a download on the developer's website that is just the "portable" executable, without the installer or toolbar.

    An honest review of the software itself would be much more helpful to others.
