Who has tried it out? Is it any good? I downloaded it today, but havent had the chance to install it.

    I have a friend who has been using it for a little while now. Says it has been working well.He has even tested it on a few infected PCs and said it removed the spyruses without any issues.

    I heard it just uninstalls IE and puts Firefox on the system. Is that true?

    That would solve 95% of all EU problems. That and having the caps lock on.

    I think its cleaned up a lot of the malware I've gotten on my system that I've just deleted the registry keys for, but there were other remnants sitting around other places. That or its just making itself look good.

    Resource-wise, how is it?

    Resourcewise it's been great. I installed it to try a "cleanup" on a clients machine it didn't find a thing. Avast, Ad-aware and Spybot all did afterwards. Overall I would say it's a false sense of security.
