  1. Just out of curiosity - and certainly no disrespect intended:

    Do you actually try out and test these programs which you recommend ?

    This CAT program seems like it could be a real life-save; however we all hear horror stories about people who have tried programs similar to this one, only to end up with even worse problems - like blue screens, unable to boot, etc.

    We trust your opinion. This CAT program really looks great - but would like to know specifically what you think about it and is it safe ?


  2. Hi, thanks for the comment and your interest in CAT. For your information, before publishing any article, we will try it in our machine for problems and malware. We will not publish if anything found unusual.
    However, we cannot guarantee that everything work fine in every machine. There might be problems at your end for several reasons. Also, should not try any utility if your system has no problems specified by the utility.

  3. Hi JK -

    Thanks for your helpful reply.

    It's very good to learn that you have tested the software which you recommend - especially because not everybody does that. Some people just say here is a new program which will do all these amazing things, so why not give a try ?

    I understand that nobody can guarantee how a program may affect my computer, and that's up to me. But I trust your judgement.

    I stop by on your website everyday - and appreciate all the hard work you do to keep it fresh and provide us with these wonderful tips.

    Thanks !
