It is so unsafe to browse on the Internet nowadays, its so sad! I was thinking whether i should get SpyHunter or not. Is it really that good?

    December 16th, 2015 at 6:29 am drives me nuts. What a freaking annoying app. These surveys pop up randomly and usually they include such stupid questions about totally random things… like how many times per week do you use chrome?
    Now i realise why they ask such questions. They wanna find out which internet browser is the best to make spyware compatible with!
