    So Annoying I never got to the point of trying it. Frankly I don't care WHAT it can do!


    Plasters all kinds of Horrible Shortcuts On YOUR desktop that are near IMPOSSIBLE to remove! Permission is to place A, GET THAT? >>>A<<< means a Single shortcut ZIPDUMMIES! Heres a few: Join ZIPGENIUS! what?!! and Follow ZIPGENIUS on Twitter! PWAHAHAHA! also Follow ZIPGENIUS on Google! Arghh... REVO uninstalled it cya


    This salesware is so annoying that I joined CNET just to comment. And don't tell me you get what you pay for. This is a "thing" that explodes crap all over your computer without your permission. Just because your not paying someone doesn't give them license to do rude & abusive things. Found it on CNET so I cant trust CNET either goodbye for good.

    It is easy to remove those shortcuts. You just need to get the administrator's permission. I had no difficulty at all.
