Honestly... this program lists invalid shortcuts as THREATS.
Anyone know anything else about this company?

This program needs a RED rating.

It is highly dangerous and will remove registry entries that are essential to the smooth running of the operating system.

I ran it and looked at the proposed 'removal' entries which included:
dat
dos
dvd
psp (Paint Shop Pro)
psd
java
rar
tar
sql
txt
wmp
man
manifest

Totally it would remove around 300 registry keys that were valid.

Sure is

Extremely dangerous program to anyone who purchases it.

I will spend some time going through all of the file extensions over the weekend and make a blog post about it :-)
