    Ummm , can someone explain why upon downloading, extracting and running this program that it automatically tries to change your homepage without your knowledge? That is not very nice, I have used The Windows Club Programs and have recommended them for quite some time, but not this one, not until it is cleaned up.
    Luckily Bitdefender caught it and rehected the change.

  2. That’s impossible! It wont change the home page 🙂

    UWT is a portable .exe file and it doesn’t do anything like this. The portable download file is named UWT3.zip and its direct download link is https://www.thewindowsclub.com/downloading-uwt3

    Some security software may give out false positives, but rest assured, its clean.

    Some security software may report it as being suspect. This is because the tweaker changes Windows system settings. However, it’s false positive.

    This tweaker is completely clean!

  4. Odd I downloaded the Austlogic registry defragmenter and it fragmented ok but then I got the blue screen come up
