    This is not worth $1. Let alone the $18.71 they want. Luckily I did the free trial first, and even that is not worth it. A complete waste of money.

    Don`t bother to download. Greedy company. Said 1 day left after being installed for 5 minutes. You can`t really even check it out, as ad comes up to buy full version every time you try to look at a page. Total waste of my time.
