I just did a shutdown restart and the IE screen message popped up. I don't have any Malware reeving progrms. There were a few free ones. Could anyone have the link and send to me?
Thanks so much..... Eileen

Thanks!

After 14 days do you buy it or is there a way to keep it without buying it?

Not KYHI, but most use the free version download. If you have downloaded the pro version, it will expire automatically if you do not select the option to purchase.
