    note: PC Armor successfully removed all traces of most samples. In a few cases it left behind driver-related legacy keys, which are notoriously difficult to remove and are harmless if the driver itself isn't present. No trace of any files remained, much less executable files, so it was 100 percent successful.(according to pcmag)
    PC Armor won't keep malware from installing on your system. It won't even alert you unless the malware attempts an action that could block PC Armor's monitoring efforts. But if something bad does weasel into your system, PC Armor can completely remove it. It also serves to document exactly what every program installer did. Average users may have trouble choosing Allow or Block when it pops a warning—I wish it could offer more help with this step. Bu technically minded users will definitely want to add this utility to their tool collection.(pcmag)

    I actually use it as an uninstaller, albeit a little buggy and hoggy.
    It's really amazing at automatically tracking installations.
    I wish the technology would have stayed with robot genius, as it no longer appears to be in development with datadrivethru(?).

    I used to use this about a year ago. Very easy and friendly in my opinion.

    Great software :)

    Just checking this out myself. Sounds like a very interesting product indeed and something nice to have in anyone's arsenal.

    PC armor's predecessor was Spyberus a freeware while in Beta. It was quite buggy, Xerces and I gave it a test drive. We did report back some bugs, wich were not resolved in the commercial version

    When looking for a something simular I would give Comodo Time Machine a try.

    It only becomes a hog after its tracked lots of installations, because it keeps re-checking files in its extensive database. The problem is that there is no way to exclude certain files or programs. So sometimes it begins tracking programs that it shouldn't track like "svchost", or it tracks ALL the files saved by programs like Windows Live Sync.

    It also fails to track installations initiated from my non-system partitions.
