Hi Shane,

First of all, thank you from providing such as great tool for free. Your tool is included in my malware removal guide: http://www.selectrealsecurity.com/malware-removal-guide/  :wink:

I have a couple suggestions for you:

- Please increase the font size for the Repair Options. It would be much easier to read.
- Don't offer your tool inside a zipped file. You want it user-friendly as possible (novice users).

It downloads as a zip file on SnapFiles: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/tcwinrepair.html

Thanks,
Brian Meyer

I ran out of room (Keeping the Window small enough to fit on screen in safe mode) so thats why I have the current font size.

The zip file is for the portable version. I have the standard setup file for normal users :-)

Hi Shane,

SnapFiles downloads the portable version. Can you please change it?

Thanks,
Brian

I sent them emails. It i up to them to change it :wink:

Not sure why they did the portable one without listing it as that.

Majorgeeks.com is my preferred mirror anyways, great guys over there :-)

I hope they change it.

By the way, I prefer not to use MajorGeeks or Softpedia because they display ads that will likely confuse the novice user.

Here are screen shots (with no adblock):

Dont be to harsh on MG.

You will see snapfiles and MG have ads in similar locations. But they don't get to control what ads are shown. Good ol Google decides that. :tongue:

I do know MG tries to put blocks up on any ads that just say download now. :wink:
