I have tried various Wise cleaner products both Free and Pro(via giveaway) and like most of the utilities. However I am not a fan of resident utilities that "protect" or monitor the system etc..
The short of it is I am trying to revert from a Wise Cleaner 365 Pro giveaway version to the Free Portable version. Mainly I use the Registry Cleaner and on occasion the Reg Defrag. Here is my problem. No matter that I uninstall the Pro version, scrub the registry, install the free version portable and not portable.. no matter what I get the Nag Screen from about 2 months out from expiration date.
This does not make it fun to use the software. Since the registry is scrubbed I have to assume one of the Giveaway versions installed something on my system to cause any version of the program to "call home" and hook up with the database there.
I do not expect to get the Pro version for free forever. But I would like to get the Free version for Free. Now I am in the position of being worse off than anyone who never tried the Pro version and just happily used the Free version. It seems counterintuitive as a marketing technique, not to mention annoying.
So is there any way to scrub the malware from my system?
