Anshuman:

I know the tool and I know the author. I know of its capabilities and I know what harm it can cause if used
improperly or used in the wrong situation.

It is NOT intended for this kind of use. It is ONLY intended for guided use by an assistant in an anti malware
forum. Any other use is contradicted by the author and may cause harm to one's computer.

As Lawrence Abrams (aka; Grinler) writes...
"Please note that running this program without supervision can cause your computer to not operate correctly.
Therefore only run this program at the request of an experienced helper."

You are kindly asked to NOT suggest its use in the future as your suggested use does not fit the criteria for its
intended use.

TIA,
Dave
