    This is the x86 verson and it will not run in x64 Windows 7.
    Get the x64 version from here:

    Also, my scan ran for just 2 seconds and indicated that my system is not infected.
    Unsure of the speed and scan quality, therefore I just gave it 3 stars.
    To be fair, this software may deserve 5 stars if it truly scans a system in lightning speed AND thoroughly.

    On my WinXP.sp3 i have started it, it has installed a driver and asked me for a reboot.

    I rebooted, and.... bang... BSoD on 'tm.sys'.

    I had to remove this driver into safe mode from my "\system32\drivers" folder.

    A very disappointing experience. :(

    I score any bas**** company that is pre-installed on systems a big fat ZERO.
    People should NOT pay an extra price for crap software, they should be able to have a choice ! And then we didn't even talk about how ustable your system gets after """uninstalling""" this bunch of big-corp crapware.
