    I often use it to clean the system of my happy clicker friends. :laugh:
    It is particularly recommended to remove browser hijacker that, once installed in the system, change the home page and the search engine of the browser and hijack you to sites full of advertisements and malicious content.
    It is a swiss army knife! :cool:
