    Be very careful with it. Once I tried to run it, it asked me to reboot into safe mode which I did.

    Then, I removed Avast successfully BUT I was stuck in Safe Mode. Even if I'd launch MSCONFIG and uncheck Safe Mode, it would revert back to being checked. I dunno what I did to fix it but it took a lot of researching to figure it out.

    Maybe it's been fixed but my advice to j00 is to make a system image before you attempt to use it and let us know if it still has that bug.

    PS: If you're using Macrium Reflect, also create a USB Flash Drive Rescue disk so if you were not able to boot into Windows to restore the image, you could just boot off the Flash Disk and start the image restoration.

    Hi,

    This product is a rebranded AVG PC TuneUp, so you can read up a little on PC Tune Up and see how it is (IMHO: Not very good).
