  1. All must be clear when it comes to using the word FREE. Be clear as to what is free the DOWNLOAD or SOFTWARE? Not all are FREE. If so, then I can offer a FREE oil change of any car for $99.99 plus extra hidden unhidden fees!

  2. To uninstall a program I use Revo uninstaller pro. I does an excellent job and till now I had no trouble afterwards. And I know it is not for free.
