This program does indeed install Relevant Knowledge, even against user concent because I have unchecked the box to install Rev Knowledge and it still proceeds to install it, hence the great pause after the new survey included in the installer on the last few releases. I am ok with toolbars and such, those are easily dealt with but sneaky adware like this is unacceptable.
This program was good to me until it tried to infect me. Here's hoping Filehippo Update Checker will improve.

Wow, reading those past reviews and I am SHOCKED, who on earth is still using Windows 98?! Honestly people, XP is practically perfected in stability, at least come forward a few years!
Now i will rate this accordingly, I think P2P clients are dead, and bloated junk clients like Bearshare further prove my point, they are left for uneducated and illiterate computer users, and this is just plain junk.

Freeware, under 2 megs, and it handles all my disc burning needs, period. It's fast, it's safe, and the developer always brings a boatload of changes and improvements with each new release.
I haven't needed Nero for 2 years now, thankyou, ImgBurn.

I use this before installing new versions of the JRE, as well as on client systems because multiple versions of JRE tend to accumulate, this is a great time saver and I'm glad to finally see an update.
I agree with the previous user it doesn't remove the installer cache, that is a feature I would like as well.

I am sick of people complaining about the ad screen, it can be easily disabled!
I have used quite possibly every single freeware antivirus application available, and this one impresses the most, it's lighter than Avast, yet detects better. It's without a doubt more lightweight than AVG, almost everything out there is safe for the joke of a security suite they call McAfee.
Just use that guide I listed above and disable the nag screen, this is the best freeware antivirus app you could ever ask for, it leaves plenty of system resources for enthusiast users while offering leading detection rates in the industry, many tests placing it right behind the industry leader Sophos, but since Sophos is a $99 license and this is freeware, Antivir is the best bet for freeware malware detection.
I install this on every system I do maintenance on, and haven't had a single complaint, save for one person I forgot to disable the nag screen for, otherwise, great product, and I recommend it above all others.

riight, so Microsoft thinks they can black out a picture of my girlfriends smiling face because I wouldn't pay $200, I THINK NOT!

So...Does this mean a layoff of thousands of Sprint tower maintenance employees?

Yeah, agreed, well done. Craigslist is still cool, but it's needed a face lift ever since it came out, and now there's an alternative that we've been waiting for.

As people have stated before me...they're waiting to see what they can copy from Firefox 3...
IE will never be the preferred browser for developers, not anymore, nomatter how much they copy Mozilla's work, they'll screw it up by trying to make it their own...like how they've copied dozens of OS ideas from Apple...and replicate them horribly.
Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to seeing how the final product turns out, and will test this beta the day it comes out.

Aaaaaand, nobody cares.
It's a terrible limited browser on both platforms.
