This program has been haunting me to back it up. so I finally clicked ok. then it only took care of part of it so for $19.95 will do the rest, so I gave my debit # and that was it. nothing more happened and the site just went away--with no fixing. what did I pay for? I'm terrified now I have up banking info for nothing and will probably have someone steal identiy, etc. what do I do now?

Somehow I've got your program in my computer and it does NOT work. When I try to signup my details are rejected even though I use the same ones as with other programs. I've tried to uninstall the program but that doesn't work. I want a back-up but this one isn't doing it.

Thank you for this program...I made the mistake of listing programs with c/net for update announcements. When I updated my VLC player, I did a custom install and opted out, but this My PC Backup installed anyway. I immediately started getting pop-ups for their setup wizard. I've removed it now, but it is very irritating and I most certainly will NEVER use c/net again for anything.

This program is currently being bundled and distributed with the CNET Download.com installers. Popups notices to run backups all the time.

Okay, you assert that your encryption is the same as banks use. But anyone banking agency and regulators can decrypt the data. How does the user set his/her backups so that only he/she or his/her heirs/agents can decrypt these data fails? The key to privacy is FIDE NEMO!
