    Interesting app. I always used REVO but a ride around the block with this one shows some pretty good stats after a sweep and the speed is better than expected. Will put it thru the acid test and see how she fairs.

    Thanks @mood

    I'm really looking forward to the next update which I thought might have been yesterday.
    I am having a serious problem with one computer which prevents me from using BCUninstaller.
    I got in touch with Marcin and was able to help him by sending him files from that computer.
    Now I am waiting -all set to hit the "Donate" button.:)

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm
    The program tells me that 4.10 is up to date.

    I got an email regarding the update a little while ago so the system works. Of course, I had already updated all 5 computers.
