I really dislike when something is not fully investigated, tested and advertised as free when it really is not.
Prevx is not freeware, it is a free download but it is not freeware, this post SHOULD have been labled as SHAREWARE because that is exactly what Prevx is. In order to get the full use of this software you must pay for a license.
If you download and install this product, all it will basically do is "monitor" your system. It WILL NOT remove malware or any type of infections which one is led to believe not only here at the Windows Club but also at the download site, to have the option of maleware and infection removal you must purchase a license, THIS in my mind makes this software TOTALLY useless.
I feel I was duped into downloading this total piece of crap, I also feel that most of the writers for the Windows Club do not do enough investigating on software and downloads before posting them here and if they do, they do not post enough COMPLETE information for one to make an educated decision on downloads.

Sorry - but I do not have time to install all software I post about. I go by what is mentioned on their landing page in good faith, and then post about it here. I can understand your anger, but it would be best directed at them and not here.
