    My fear is you were suckered into buying snake oil. If this program was free to download and run, then found a whole bunch of stuff that then required you to pay to remove it, it is a scam!!!! And may be malicious too.
    I came to the same conclusion - couldn't find anything on the net about it. Plus Barbee paid a years subscription - eek

    Best Removal tool sounds a little like ransom/trick ware. tells you, you have thousands of problems and wants money to fix them..but never does.
    there are many free programs to do the same thing ,even better

    Have you scanned for malware? I suggest you download and install Malwarebytes's Anti-Malware (MBAM). This is free, but IMO, the paid version is worth it.

    It wasn't compatible with my virus detector.

    My last ASUS computer.

    By the way, all, I took the computer to a computer repair service. they think it is a virus... but I think it's the hard drive. We shall see.

    Good luck.

    I took my computer to a shop years ago & they charged me $80 an hour.
    I said to myself, "Never again".

    Now I can fix my own problems after years of studying how to do so & from help found here in this forum.
