Since this is a freeware program , the installer is bundled with ASK Toolbar , which is a spyware . If you allow , it will install a toolbar into your internet browsers and also set your homepage to ASK.com apart from watching you all the time .
So be vigilant enough to uncheck the ASK Toolbar installation option during the setup .
So guys , did you try this nice tool .
