Who Are We?

Should I Remove It? Is powered and created by Reason Software Company Inc, which is founded and run by former anti-virus/spyware experts from Microsoft. The impetus for Should I Remove It? was the recognition that many PC users from beginner to advance alike were unable to make confident decisions when it comes to removing software by merely looking at the app titles listed in Windows' Add/Remove Programs. Should I Remove It? was then ingeniously developed by our super savvy team specifically as a practical tool to help PC users make well-informed decisions when it comes to identifying and removing unessential programs such as adware toolbars, manufacturer bloatware and so forth.
