    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Doing a search would have given you a LOT of discussion on this. Bottom line: AVOID!!! UNINSTALL IMMEDIATELY (and be sure to use their uninstaller!!).

    A little late to be asking for opinions AFTER the fact isn't it?

    Since you've already paid for it, time to make your own decision.

    Could be wrong, but don't believe you're going to find a long time member of this forum that's even allowed that piece of spammer software onto their machine, much less used it.

    There is no need for those Windows type crossover products on a Mac.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    And red-bizkit do not be afraid to ask in these forums first. Can save a lot of heart ache not to mention your hard earned cash.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
