    This software attempts to install at least 6 different pieces of crapware/spyware while it leads you to believe is is updating your software. It also presents you with a survey regarding, among other things, your race and personal income, with no way of opting out. I am amazed that you did not metion any of this in your review.

    When you click on his download page, you get a choice to install a “no-ads” version of each his software. A bit hard to find I will agree, but at least he offers if you look. Still, it’s not a very upfront way of doing things but I guess of you are trying to generate some sort of revenue, this is what to expect.
