    "Why trust a liar?"

    January 18, 2015  |   By peterblaise

    Version: iSafe Virus Removal 5.6.54

    Pros

    None I can see -- cons (below) overwhelmed my desire to test further.

    Cons

    #1 - I ran it's internal speedtest and got 0.4/0.5 mbps = -s-l-o-w-, then I exited to my own browser and ran speedtest.org and got 35/11 mbps as expected ... so what's YAC's plan, to lie to me that my computer is slow, when it isn't, then tell me it sped it up for me, when it was fine before YAK?

    Why trust a liar?

    #2 - The program YOU download here is clean, but it downloads more from their web site during installation and update to get started, and that's where the dirty comes in.

    #3 -- Crashed my Windows Explorer.

    #4 - WOT reputation BAD!

    Summary

    Move on, folks, no independent recommendations here, nothing trustworthy.

    "NICE APP! SMALL SIZE STRONG POWER"

    January 13, 2015  |   By Obamababama

    Version: iSafe Virus Removal 5.6.54

    Pros

    I can hardly believe that a app with a small size can provide such powerful functions.
    Help me get rid of the botcrawl virus.

    Cons

    None I think

    "MY COMPUTER WILL CRASH WITHOUT YAK"

    January 13, 2015  |   By Jason Stuart

    Version: iSafe Virus Removal 5.6.54

    Pros

    I decided to make some fun last night so I visit some sites which you know what I mean. Unluckily, I became the LUCKY one. I suddenly found I had this software in my computer (which I can hardly remember when it is installed in my computer). Wow, after a quick scan, I found the trouble maker.

    Cons

    Honestly speaking, I'm sure I haven't downloaded it in my computer before. Is it the gift of the god?

    "got rid of Omiga-Plus"

    January 12, 2015  |  

    Version: iSafe Virus Removal 5.6.54

    Pros

    I don't know how it did it, I was following instructions on youtube but I think the youtube guy had the full version, I only had the trial/free version of YAC, but somehow YAC did exactly what I needed it to do... it got rid of Omiga-Plus.
    I'm assuming Omiga-Plus is no longer on my PC, because internet explorer opens as google now and not redirected to Omiga-Plus

    Cons

    I'm not sure exactly how I achieved what I achieved, I just clicked around a lot on words like 'scan' and 'clean'

    Summary

    Worth a shot

    "DO NOT INSTALL THIS MALWARE DISTRIBUTION!!!"

    January 12, 2015  |   By danorse

    Version: iSafe Virus Removal 5.6.54

    Pros

    Well, you could infect your enemies computers with this software, and you can be confident that they will have a troubled computer for a long time...

    Cons

    As many have pointed out already, this is fake software sailing under false flag.
    After installation you have to rely on real malware removal tools like AdwCleaner, Combofix, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware et. al...
    You are warned!

    Summary

    Don't do it!
    (When is "negative" stars coming here?)

    "BEWARE - CHINESE SPYWARE WILL DESTROY YOUR COMPUTER"

    January 8, 2015  |  

    Version: iSafe Virus Removal 5.6.54

    Pros

    FAKE SOFTWARE that installs hundreds of spyware programs, almost impossible to uninstall this software, this software not only spys and copies all of your internet activity , it also disables internet explorer from working. I can not believe CNET allows this on thier site. This is the first time any CNET download damaged my computer. Took me hours to try and uninstall, and restore my computer.

    Cons

    not only does this fake spyware virus have a high editor star rating, but lots of fake 4 star ratings with nonsense comments - troll a polluza - YAC demonstrates that CNET has been hacked, and is now endorsing chinEse malware and spyware

    "A poor reputation brings a real-good experience"

    January 5, 2015  |   By Danielmercy

    Version: iSafe Virus Removal 5.6.54

    Pros

    3 out of 5 people will claim this product is problematic: rogue software, virus or something else.
    Without knowing this before, I downloaded this and use it for a couple of days. Very nice! Quite helpful. When I search this software in Google, it appears to have a poor reputation. So I just uninstalled this app.

    Cons

    I just leave a favorable comment here to prove it is helpful, but I don't know whether it will do harm for my computer.

    Summary

    So far so good

    "Mediocre Protection that comes with a FREE INFECTION!"

    January 5, 2015  |   By ClassicDan

    Version: iSafe Virus Removal 5.6.54

    Pros

    -Some basic protection from Spyware/Malware

    Cons

    -Has an interface that is intrusive, annoying, and impossible to get rid of without closing or uninstalling the program
    -Will CONSTANTLY be downloading adware behind the scenes without any permission (like how AVAST asks to send your info...they don't do that)...like something a VIRUS would do, NOT an ANTI-VIRUS.
    -Can be INSANELY difficult to uninstall (wasn't in Control Panel, and it's sub folder wasn't named YAC, or Yet Another Cleaner, or anything like it: It's Elex-Tech for those have similar issues that I did).

    Summary

    I don't even know why CNET allows a program like this on their site...not to mention it's in the top 20 T_T. It's just as much Malware as the malware the program is trying to prevent. Seriously, there are TONS of free programs that did what this program does, but without the infections.
