    Stay away from that app. It causes many people major problems.

    It is a dreadful programme; don't touch it.

    Suffice to say, while not paying full attention to what I was doing (and not realising what it was - I should have asked somewhere, such as this forum here) I downloaded it over two years ago…….and had to get professional assistance to get rid of it. An absolute nuisance and an utter menace.

    Steer well clear is my advice.

    We have to remove this off a few Macs a week at work. Terrible software, avoid at all costs

    Thanks for that everyone, sadly I might have already done some damage already.
    Need to get rid of all associated files looking at the links that are attached.

    Generally, you don't need such programs on OS X.
