    I have not used it as it has only been out to the public for 5 days.They say they have all these awards, http://smartpctools.com/awards.html and ask for your name and e-mail.Do you feel lucky and want to try it out?If so then let us know what you think about it.I will leave it alone for a while myself.

    Those "awards" are bogus. I read where someone took a text file, changed the extension to .exe, submitted it and won some of those "awards" :rolleyes:

    It appears to be a descendant of the VCOM antivirus application; same company with a new GUI styled to resemble the Avira.

    Like pugmug, I'll wait before trying this one out.

    I just gave it a try.

    It is ok, no rogue software. It will give you 1-2 pubblicity popups the first time you run it, but you have the choice to select "Do not show this window again".

    It uses the NictaTech Software engine and database.
