    "Incredibly Frustrating, acts like a virus"

    April 2, 2013  |   By BradleyyeldarB

    Pros

    reinstalls rapidly

    Cons

    My computer started crashing and i noticed somehow this program had been installed. I think this product came onto my computer bundled with some adobe software, i certainly didnt intentionally ask for it. Well i thought i could uninstall it and that would be that, however having uninstalled it, it would some how creep back on and start a reinstallation process each time i started my computer, slowing me down, wasting my time, it turned out to be incredibly difficult to remove, much like a virus. i used the search tool to find all norton and symnatec named products and remove them. it still tried to reinstall. i downloaded a special norton removal tool for 2013, ran this, and it would still start reinstalling. i researched online and found many people struggling with this, in the end i had to remove the program, run an unstallation process, delete temporary files, restart, download and run removal tool, remove temporary files and restart, and its seems to be gone... for now !

    Summary

    this is one of the most problematic viral software i have had to deal with. im pissed off at the amount of time i had to waste with this program, a spanner in the works of a productive day.
