Anyone use this program-is it safe

Posted by lotodig (My Page) on

I was browsing the Help2Go site and found this app listed on their 'Recommended Software' list. It looks like it might help me clean up my USB ports where in the past I've had grandkids not use the 'safe to uninstall' feature and there's a list of connections I can't get rid of.

Any recommendations or warnings?

RE: Anyone use this program-is it safe

I have not used that particular one but I have used many of the Nirsoft tools and have always had very good results and no problems. Now some of their tools for retrieving your passwords from your own pc or your wireless network will sometimes trigger a negative response from some antivirus programs those are false positives and due to the very nature of the tool, they do have a page on their site letting you know that may happen.
