    I wish I’d read this sooner. I installed anvisoft on my laptop and straight away things went wrong…. There were programmes being installed on my hard drive I hadn’t authorised or downloaded. I was deleting them and they’d be back within an hour, programmes like shopperzzz and webguard. Also for some reason the speakers on my laptop refused to function. I uninstalled it yesterday and the speakers started working again, but now I cannot connect to the internet via wifi or wired connection, even though it’s saying I’ve got one.

    I tried anvisoft twice, and i removed it firstly because it takes over your PC, and changes things, mostly it would appear for the hell of it. However it was after I removed it I found that Google would not open easily,then not at all. I downloaded another version and the same. Finally I used a chrome installer from a backup memory stick i had and no problems. Just to be sure what I might be dealing with I installed anvisoft had a look at it found again, it was taking over my browsers and changing things. After uninstalling the second time the same with Google chrome and its sudden lack of response. Again I had to use a google installer from outside my PC and one that was down loaded before any contact with Anvisoft. I could be wrong about all this, but I am not game to push my luck any further. Went through my registry manually and removed all trace after using a forced uninstall.

    Anvisoft is the worst. First they scrape their competitor websites… They steal their content, steal their images, etc. and when confronted about it they totally lie!!! But it’s so obvious that they steal! They leave watermarks, hidden text and everything!

    Their software doesn’t even work! It’s a crappy virus! I wish they government would step in and arrest these cyber criminals.
