I installed a free IObit from a friend, and I am very pleased with the speed and simplicity that meets the needs of a beginner in maintaining his personal computer. Thank you for that! I have to inform you that I will buy an IObit license, just to donate an amount to help you continue your work. Thank you!

I love the automatic aspect of the updates. It's fast and efficient, and it also creates a restore point prior to install just in case something goes wrong. I also love that the program downloads the updates directly from the appropriate sites rather than my having to go to each individual site to download an update. I think this is one of your best ideas yet!
