Avoid. Dodgy... much like SpeedUpMyPC, and all those other fake programs.

Let me correct that
Some REAL reviews there :-)

Some of these dodgy software companies flood the internet with fake good reviews.
That software even gets flagged by malware scanners (PUP)

Are you getting popups or is it showing alot in the browser?? If so, you may allready be infected.
Run malwarebytes or Hitmanpro on the PC.

I can't seem to find it on C-net now, but that was loaded with hilarious fake reviews. They deleted all the negative ones.

And this figures, a Norton user actually uses this and wonders why Nortons is flagging it as suspicious :lol:

Many thanks to all for the very explicit replies. It made me suspicious when each time I deleted the plea to download, it appeared again very quickly. Just as well that we have these young guru's to help us old guys. Cheers Ron..

if you need something for backups, I think you'll find active@ (free) is very good and recommended by most here

The paid active@ is even better and cheap
