it's Disgusting , dangerous and control evry thing in you'r pc let you no choice to run eny program ! even when you try to run a cleaner program it stop it from woking i am thinking to format my pc to get it out of my pc
braucht extrem viel Recourcen, lädt im Hintergrund Daten vom Rechner auf das Internet
Ever since Ive noticed this app in my task manager Ive had problems with my ping in online multiplayer games aswell as receiving "errors" that require me to restart my pc. I am also unable to close the program in the task manager (Which is very suspicious) and to top it all off my bank account was recently stripped of everything in it. I am still unable to navigate to the main file, or any file for that matter of iSaveSvc2. All these facts taken into consideration it is clear that this product (which does not even have an interface, just runs in background all the time *cough* spyware *cough*)is a virus of some kind.
