    Creating a folder in My Documents is NOT acceptable. That folder is for my personal documents. Applications have enough options to store files, configs and other junk. There's the ProgramData folder, there's a personal AppData folder and they have their own folder in Program Files.

    @LUSONO - Lots of these types of applications create a folder in 'My Documents' for saving log files, i.e. scan results. This is perfectly normal/acceptable behaviour.

    I don't know how effective this program is because I didn't have any problems to take care of, but why, WHY does it make a folder in your "My Documents" folder? Programs that do this are so annoying! It makes a folder called "RegRun 2" in your "My Documents" folder. After you have a few programs that do this, you might look in your documents folder and find a lot of junk that you don't want there. Lots of great programs just install and work great, without doing this to your system. Get rid of this folder annoyance and this program will immediately be a lot more attractive. Still, this program doesn't seem bad in other ways and it's free so I'll give it a 4 for now.

    It's very useful utility. It helped me in a trouble.
    Also, I recommended to take a look at RegRun Suite. It has a bit clumsy interface, but it can save you time and nerves by protecting your computer against intruders and other malware. I use it for many years, and I guarantee it's "must have" class software.

    after checking the home site, it seems the freeware is just an analyzer and produces its results in some log file.

    subsequently, that log file has to be sent to its home-base where a customized file or program to run against the detected infections will be provided to the user.

    its an interesting methodology but not sure if its worth the variety of risks involved.
