    I would not trust this program as its behaviour is too risky. First of all, after installation, the program does not appear in the list of installed programs on Windows 7. Therefore there is no standard way to uninstall it. Secondly, it forces all applications to close down including your antivirus and other antispyware. This is highly destructive. Thirdly, it finds files that were not on the computer already. For example, I do not use toolbars on browsers........and this one says there are. Fourth, it forces you to reboot, which is a dangerous sign. After reboot.........it shows the log of what was deleted, which is acceptable. Then I go back to Control Panel / Programs and try to uninstall. Impossible. Then I find the original installation file.........run it again and then use the uninstall option. At the first attempt not uninstalled. Program still shown in the task manager. At the second attempt uninstalled. I have tested a large number of antispyware (Malwarebytes, Spybot, etc) but this program design is highly unusual. I will not install again. This is my personal view .........and you may wish to try for yourself. Good luck.
