The information presented is in small print and it is likely that most Windows users will simply press the ‘Next’ button until the program is installed. Unfortunately, this is a big mistake. The wizard forces you to change home page and search provider settings, install the Babylon Toolbar, WebCake, Optimizer Pro and Apps Hat. As you may know already, after the installation is complete, your browsers appear to have been corrupted. The first thing you are likely to notice is that your home page has be changed to start.search.us.com or search.babylon.com.

The scanner it represents is completely fictitious and you certainly do not need to purchase the full version of this rogue application.
