Do NOT install this software.
Yes it screwed my whole computer up to. 1st it said it wouldn't install. Said to try again. So i had trouble installing it. Once i installed it. It basically had my system running so that it wouldn't even restart after installing it. It ran for 30 minutes with the restart screen and the mouse in 'think' mode. It wouldnt do anything. I could not even turn it off by button. So i basically had to do a fast unplug of my system as it was so slow it was crazy and i have a brand new bad azz system. Then once my system got started back up it was so slow and acting funny so i decided to uninstall the program. Instead of uninstalling i decided not to and just to do a default system restore to earlier time and date. That way incase it had done any other damage. Right? Well It wouldn't allow that and basically gave me the black screen of death after it ran the default restore system.
I could not use the restore, could not go into safe mode. Nothing. It had white writing on the black page telling me it messed up a few sectors and boot sector. I could not even use the systems self diagnostic and repair system even.
Luckily i am ahead of the game and smart so i could and actually did get my system up and working again but then had to do a full reformat of course. Lost a bunch of stuff tho and everything.
I am very ticked off about this.
why would you guys allow this program to be avail for download. You need to take it off the market or where people can not download it and you need to stop testing software with everyday people or users / clients. and test them yourselves.
It is actually a good idea of a program and might have potential in about 2 years but until then you need to not allow downloads or installs of it.
I also posted about this on PCWorld where i got it from as it showed up in a newsletter from them. I also went off on them for even posting this crap of software.
If anybody needs help correcting with there system about this software if it screwed your system let me know
If and when during black screen and you are working on Vista or Windows 7. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A REPAIR DISC you created when you first ran your system and created one.
Basically run the system with the black screen. Run it to repair bad sections when that comes up and asks when it tries to start. Or do it in diagnostic mode. Most likely will not allow that either. So what you have to do is Then try and reboot and when it does you will see this program pop up. It will not allow you to run the back up image from it tho or back to the state of the install of it as it creates an image automatically of that time period but will not allow you do that or the other option either tho. So what you do is just actually uninstall it from there. It will allow that. Then your system will kind of free up but not really. You can start it up but still shows bad sectors and boot. (cant remember which files tho it destroyed) but it shows the numbers. Anyways then do that and have it start messed up and before you click on the black screen to run a repair start up (i think that's how it was worded) just run it that way and select "repair bad sections etc" this time put in your repair disc, click then the button showing in the box from that screen to repair bad etc.. and then let it run and the disc run. It then should allow it to repair those sections and ALL of what it messed up with the main system files enough to where you can actually start it up.
Then you need to do a full reformat.
If this happens and you get to this as explained above. You will see what i mean from there and be able to understand it better if you can not understand it now.
