First off thanks for the topic. I thought I was safe with free software and when my PC was basically rendered useless I felt helpless. I knew enough to go into safe mode and tried anything (no choice), this took an entire day for me because I tried everything out there and none were any good once the infection was in, until I came across the online scanner for this software. I purchased the protection because it is a lot cheaper to fix Malware (prevent) than to throw away a PC and this software did what no other that I personally tried could. Frankly I'm ecstatic about it. I do not mind paying for what actually works.
