I don't know if it is good or bad, but the sneaky installing, even when I declined the offer from a 3rd party program? no thanks

Many people install this program and suffer a lot of problem. It may slow down your computer instead of making it faster, and it may incorrectly delete some important register files also. I suggest that you should never install this program.

Ok to uninstall this, you have to use revo uninstaller, it can remove the remaining hidden files or remove the program but I recommend not using this because it turns off your firewall service. It is a bad program

This app protects itself and a normal uninstall like the one above doesn't work most of the times
