    please note that the above is free for the rest of the day at Giveaway of the Day. Also please note that an excellent independent software analyst has given his thoughts on this software as to it's suitability for the average user. The software can be found along with the review by Ashraf here

    WinUtilities and Perfect Utilities appear to be the same program, made by the same firm ylcomputing.com, only Perfect Utilities is free.
    http://www.putils.com/

    On Perfect Utilities forum though there are reports of the latest version 3.03 installs rkinstall.exe & rkverify.exe

    Just thought this may be worth a heads up for anyone who installs the giveaway as on Ashrafs site someone reports that WinUtilities installs into the folder …/perfect utilities

    I have just tried both versions

    The Giveawayoftheday appears to be clean.

    The Perfect Utilities 3.03 does contain spyware, there is a checkbox to give the choice whether to install relevant knowledge or not.
    However Avira still gives warnings the spyware is being installed.

    It would appear to be the same firm that produces these two programs.

    According to Ashrafs site they are both one and the same firm and program, only Perfect Utilities contains spyware.

    He does seam to be on the ball Ashraf with his reviews and updates to when changes are made. To be on the safe side i would install Win Utilities 9.1 which is clean apart from a tool bar which you can un check
